Synopsis

Dora at Follyfoot by Monica Dickens

The Colonel, owner of Follyfoot, the Home of Rest for Horses, has been ill and has to go away to convalesce. Dora and Steve are left in charge, with the strict instruction, 'Don't buy any horses'. But when Dora sees the rangy, cream-coloured lame horse, Amigo, she is determined to save him from spending his last days pulling a heavy log-cart - even if it means borrowing money from sly Ron Stryker. But to pay Ron back, someone from Follyfoot must win the Moonlight Pony Steeplechase...

About the Author

Monica Dickens

Monica Dickens, the great granddaughter of Charles Dickens, was one of the best selling women's novelists of her generation. She was educated at St Paul's Girls' School, but was expelled after throwing her school uniform over Hammersmith Bridge. During the war she worked as a nurse and in a Spitfire factory, and began writing novels. Monica Dickens felt the challenge to write for children and began in the 1970s. Her Follyfoot books were made into one of the most successful TV series for children of the 1970s and remain a favourite of horse-lovers everywhere. Monica Dickens was born in 1915 and died in 1985.
