Josephine Pullein-Thompson RIP

Josephine Pullein-Thompson, one of the three Pullein-Thompson sisters, has died aged ninety. She was a redoubtable woman. There’s an obituary here.

Pictured, first edition of I Had Two Ponies, 1947, illustrated by Anne Bullen. The sisters wrote so many pony books; Josephine’s are my favourites, although I haven't kept many.
