Palace House Museum shop presents: Clare Balding book signing
The Racehorse Who Learned to Dance
Tuesday 17th December 1:30pm ‚Äì 3:00pm
¬†Continuing the adventures of young heroine Charlie Bass and her funny family of humans and animals, The Racehorse Who Learned to Dance is the concluding chapter of Clare Balding‚Äôs bestselling Charlie Bass trilogy, following The Racehorse Who Disappeared and The Racehorse Who Wouldn‚Äôt Gallop.
The Racehorse Who Learned to Dance is another aspirational story about overcoming adversity and following your dreams written in the tradition of classic animal stories such as Gerald Durrell‚Äôs My Family and Other Animals and Dick King-Smith‚Äôs The Sheep Pig but with a thoroughly modern twist and a fantastic, can-do heroine.
Join us on Tuesday 17th December for a special book signing in the Palace House Museum Shop. A wonderful opportunity to purchase a very special gift for Christmas for your loved ones and meet National treasure Clare Balding.

When she was young, Clare Balding thought she was a dog. Disappointed to discover she was only human, she did her best to spend every waking hour with dogs and ponies. She could ride before she could walk and, growing up surrounded by racehorses trained by her father, she dreamt of winning the grand National or riding for Great Britain at the Olympics. Those dreams never came true but the consolation prize hasn‚Äôt been bad. As a television presenter and radio presenter, Clare has worked at six Olympic Games as well as the Winter Olympics, Paralympics, Commonwealth Games, the Grand National, Royal Ascot, Wimbledon and the Ryder Cup. Clare‚Äôs first book, My Animals and Other Family, was a runaway number one bestseller and won the Autobiography of the Year at the 2012 Specsavers National Book Awards. Her subsequent book, Walking Home was also a Sunday Times Bestseller. Clare‚Äôs debut children‚Äôs novel The Racehorse Who Wouldn‚Äôt Gallop was the second bestselling children‚Äôs debut of 2016. www.clarebalding.com | @ClareBalding
