A Pony for Jean- Joanna Cannan
Beautifully restored and complete with gorgeous charcoal illustrations, this classic story will delight any pony-mad little girl
When her family fall on hard times, Jean and her family (including their dog Shadow) must move to the country. Not to worry though, as it seems they're going to live in a lovely little cottage, and Jean is assured she can have chickens. And perhaps even a new puppy...
Jean has never been to the country before, and is fairly sure she isn't going to like it. But she soon learns that the country is full of fun and adventures, and much more exciting than boring old London. Sadly her newly-discovered cousins are a bit haughty though, as well as pony-mad, and Jean wishes she could join in. But then a wonderful opportunity to do so arrives in the form of a pony named 'The Toastrack' (so-called due to his poor ribs sticking out so much) and Jean is told she can have him! The cousins are mean, and say a knacker's horse like that won't ever come to anything, but Jean and the quickly-renamed Cavalier know they can prove them wrong. Gymkhana glory is only a few jumps away!
