Tilly's Pony Tails 16 : Royal Flame The Police Horse by Pippa Funnell

Meet Tilly Redbrow, who doesn't just love horses - she lives, breathes and dreams them too! Follow Tilly's adventures as she learns to ride and care for the horses at Silver Shoe Farm, and develops her special gift, with a little help from her favourite horse, Magic Spirit. For every girl who has ever longed for a pony of her own, these delightful, warm and engaging stories are packed with Pippa Funnell's expert advice on everything you ever wanted to know about horses.

When a fire starts at Silver Shoe Farm, retired police horse Royal Flame saves the day in Pippa Funnell's sixteenth pony tale.

A message from Pippa Funnell, champion rider, Olympic Medallist and Grand Slam winner:

"When I wrote my autobiography I never imagined that I would find myself writing children’s books just 3 years later. Much of my thinking about Tilly has been done out loud in front of family, friends and godchildren – thank you all for listening. But, more than anything I have to acknowledge my four-legged friends – my horses. It is thanks to them, that I was able to create a girl, Tilly, who like me follows her passions.


Here is some recent praise from pony-mad youngsters:

'When I read Black Beauty I thought that was good, but this is even better' - Emily Cooper

I recommend Magic Spirit to people who are pony mad. I loved it and I think other people will too' - Megan MacDuff

'I love horses so I like reading about them as well. This book is the best book in the whole world' - Pandora Ross
