Read full description of the books:
This was a wonderful read, it could have been longer but we loved it. I would have loved to read this as a Child, the motherless girl with a love for horses, longing for friendship would have really appealed to me. Pamela lives with her Aunts, her mother died and her father works away. When she is given a necklace from her Grandmother she feels something is going to happen that summer. She meets Ponyboy and his coloured friendly ponies, they become friends and have adventures until their their love of fairy tales culminates in a scary encounter with a Hansel and Gretel witch cross with Circe character.
As often happens, this copy has been given a new cover. The illustrations inside are wonderful, subtle and slightly childlike, my daughter said they looked like Tove Jansson artwork. How sad they have replaced the cover and the new illustrator hasn't even flicked through the book as they would have found that the children are younger and the girl has long straight dark hair she always wore in plaits, and the horse has a fluffy cloud of a mane, whereas the horse in the picture doesn't appear to even have one. The new cover makes the book look like a YA romance. So frustrating when publishers choose to do this!
We love the magic and the ponies and the music. A very special book, great escapism.
