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.
