About Horuda

Join a miniature ceramic creature on his adventurous journey

Meet Horuda, a miniature ceramic creature, who one
snowy night climbs out from the freshly fired kiln to
search for an adventure. During his journey, Horuda
encounters a streak of unfortunate events but also

inner strength to carry on till he makes it back to
safety – his potter’s ceramic workshop.

When life knocks you down do you give in,
or do you stand back up and keep going?
A beautifully illustrated, eventful and
exciting journey of resilience.

  • Great book for the little ones
  • Will
"An incredibly well thought through phonics orientated Alphabet set of stories. The stories read like Julia Donaldson crosses with Elmer. It’s like 26 mini books in one. So imaginative and such detailed and intriguing drawings. It was a gift for my son and we loved it so much we bought another for our nephew."
  • So many phonics orientated stories!
  • S.R. Larner
"Animalfabulous stories and illustrations. A beautifully realised book, with stunning illustrations matched by enthralling stories that will have the children AND adults riveted. Maybe a poster of the very clever and memorable alphabet letters (feature in the book) formed from animals would be fantastic companion to the book. Super."
  • Avi

"Beautiful artwork, fun stories! The animal stories in this book are fun, engaging and inventive - and they're brilliantly brought to life by some beautiful artwork. Great for reading together with younger kids, and for older ones to read and discover the enchanting tales themselves. I bought this book for my 7 year old niece, who absolutely loves it! Highly recommended!"
