Plenty Of (Room For) Ponies




I see that Charlotte Fyfe, daughter of Christine Pullein-Thompson, is the latest person to take advantage of the Telegraph’s wonderful Advertise your house for free by letting us write an article about it scheme. Previous beneficiaries include Princess Michael of Kent.

The house looks wonderful and possibly a bargain. I have to say that of all the Pullein-Thompson sisters’ books I like Christine’s the least, finding them rather miserable. I like Josephine’s a lot (Plenty of Ponies, the Pony Club series etc.) but I think their mother, Joanna Cannan, was a better writer than her daughters.

I'd love a house like that! :-)

Sadly, its next owner will most likely not own a single book to put in it ...
Wouldn't we all.

But perhaps they'll have ponies! Reading the article, I found it surprising that a woman who wrote books and presumably read them, too, would chivvy her children outdoors all the time.
I like Diana best - Riding with the Lyntons was just my idea of heaven! I was always being sent outside, too, when I wanted to read.
I like Diana's books I Wanted a Pony and Three Ponies and Shannan.

My favourite pony book in the world is The Ten Pound Pony by Veronica Westlake.
