I'm a great fan of Ruby Ferguson's pony books. The funny thing is, I don't particularly like horses. Sat on one once and the elevated height made me nauseous. Ferguson's style of writing is lively and animated. And the story line makes you read on till the end where ( like most good books) you sigh and wished you had one more book by the same author to continue on. After simply ages, I made it to the second hand bookstore and after very minimal rummaging I found this:) Certainly made my weekend.
