Television presenter, radio broadcaster and author Clare Balding is coming back to Wolverhampton Grammar School to launch her latest children’s book.

Clare visited the School back in December and is following up her bestselling debut novel “The Racehorse Who Wouldn’t Gallop” with a brand new children’s title, “The Racehorse Who Disappeared” and another visit to School in October.

In this book, Clare continues the adventures of young Charlie Bass and her funny family of humans and animals. Life is slowly getting back to normal for Charlie after her reluctant racehorse, Noble Warrior, won the Derby and saved her family from financial ruin. But drama soon returns to Folly Farm when thieves break into the farmyard in the dead of night and kidnap Noble Warrior. With the police baffled and no trace of the prizewinning thoroughbred to be found, Charlie launches her own investigation.

Clare will speak to Year 7 students from a number of local schools during her visit to Wolverhampton Grammar School. Following Clare’s presentation, signed hardback copies of The Racehorse Who Disappeared will be available to purchase, priced at £9.
