The Lovereading4Kids comment

The combination of ponies and princesses is a match made in heaven and there can be no girl who won’t devour this one and the various others in the series. Brilliant stocking filler for that pony mad and / or would-be princess little girl who is just starting to enjoy the experience of reading.

Synopsis

Princess Ellie Saves The Day by Diana Kimpton

Featuring the Princess Ellie with pony facts. Synopsis Meg, the palace groom, is going on a well-earned holiday, and so the old groom George has come out of retirement to help out while she's away.

About the Author

Diana Kimpton

Diana Kimpton has written more than forty books for children, including her Pony-Mad Princess series, other novels, picture books and non-fiction. She has always loved horses and finds that writing about them gives her the perfect excuse to spend time at the stables when she should be working.
Diana says " I've always made up stories. When I was a child, I did it in my head using characters from my favourite TV programmes or the horses I dreamed of owning. But I never saw writing as a possible career, especially as I didn't like English at secondary school. Perhaps I was already too much a writer at heart to enjoy dissecting other people's books. So I left school and became a maths teacher which I didn't like. Then I left teaching and became a mother which I loved. Finally, in the time left over from parenting, I became a writer which is such fun that I don't ever want to stop."

Here's Diana talking about her writing...

A Q&A with Diana about her new novel, There Must Be Horses

What led you to write There Must Be Horses?

Did you do much research for the book?

How long did it take you to write the book?
Ages - I've never spent so long on any book. I wrote the first chapter five years ago, just to see if Sasha worked as a character. Then I stopped writing while I worked on the Amy Wild - Animal Talker books, but I kept on with the research and let the story grow on my head. Once I settled down to work on the book again, I spent about a year finalising the plot and actually writing it down.
