Tim the Tiny Horse (ISBN 9780571229550, 2006) is a children's fiction book by Harry Hill.

Tim the Tiny Horse is described as "definitely the smallest horse you could ever find". His stable is a matchbox with a tic-tac box conservatory and with a cocktail stick, some cotton and a hawthorn berry, Tim can play swingball. In the book, you can see what it's like being Tim: the highs and lows of trying to get into radio; making a reality TV programme; or just kicking back and enjoying a Hula Hoop with his best friend Fly. Then there's the serious stuff - Tim thinking about the meaning of life and his own mortality, Tim dealing with Fly's new girlfriend, and, of course, his passion for Anna Ford.

The following is the segments of the book:
