Tim the Tiny Horse is exceedingly small. Given a cocktail stick, a piece of cotton and a hawthorn berry, he could play swingball. But it isn't easy being tiny. Every day there is a new challenge: a fight with a fly over a hoola hoop; the struggle to be the first ever tiny TV star; his fear of big dogs (particularly ones with a nasty look in their eyes). Luckily, he is a plucky fellow and what he lacks in stature he more than makes up for in enthusiasm - for chicken nuggets, his tic-tac box conservatory and The News at One O'Clock from the BBC with Anna Ford.Hary Hill has created a gentle, comical character who will be adored by his fans and will make him many more, both adults and children. The twelve stories, all illustrated by Harry, look at the hilarious trials of everyday life for a little horse the size of a 50p piece.
Harry Hill used to be a doctor but not for a long time now. He has many TV shows and tells jokes for a living. His hobbies are painting and drawing and occasional games of swingball.
