a lot of tomato ketchup in places it shouldn’t be…”

by Melodie Trudeaux (Author), Heather Murphy (Illustrator)

A really weird thing happens to 11 year old Megan Crewe when she bumps into Jack the old carthorse. She’s too busy to worry about it until she realises what a terrible secret she’s uncovered. Jack is in danger but no one will believe it except her best friend Amy. Their ideas come thick and fast, but nothing works, and as the menace creeps closer, events snowball.

There’s a horse in Amy’s mum’s prize greenhouse, a lot of tomato ketchup in places it shouldn’t be, a ton of heavenly chocolate, and the dreadful taste of artificial flowers.

In all the chaos, can they save Jack? Or has the danger that stalked the old horse turned its eye on them instead?


About the author
Melodie Trudeaux has been around horses all her life. She used to ride competitively and she is a big supporter of young riders. She still rides for pleasure and acts as a judge at local shows and gymkanas. Melodie's other passion is space travel although she has never left the Earth... yet.

Well known children's author Tony Bradman says of the book, 'Melodie has written a story with plenty of jeopardy, tension and some really nail-biting scenes.'

This is Melodie's first novel.



Note from the Author…
I am super pleased to see my book being so well received. It's my first proper published story and to see it being taken up by so many of my horsey friends and their families is wonderful. I have many plans for Megan Crewe in the future and the support I have received has given me the motivation to keep writing. Thank you all!

I bought this book yesterday and have just spotted it here on your blog. So glad to see you showcasing it. It's a good fast moving read. I loved it even though I'm a bit (a lot) outside the target age range. I'm getting copies for all the small people attached to our family. I knew it would be good because of the comment from ace children's writer Tony Bradman on the cover.

I enjoyed Melodie's book, too, Penny! A bit of whimsy and horse-love creates an engaging read for everyone. A quick read for adults; a thought-provoking good read for the younger crowd.
