This eighth book in the Riverdale Pony Stories series is packed with peril, mystery and high-octane action.
This eighth book in the Riverdale Pony Stories series is packed with peril, mystery and high-octane action as pony-mad Poppy McKeever goes into detective mode to track down the dog that attacked the sheep on her friend’s farm, while also preparing for a big riding competition.
While the writing is pacey and has an urgency to it, at times the somewhat dense descriptions could benefit from a little trimming. But, overall, this gripping, entertaining adventure rings with authentic dialogue, strong evocations of the countryside and Poppy’s indomitable spirit.
Feeling guilty that she did nothing to stop the attack, she makes it her mission to uncover the identity of the mystery dog.
But first there is a new challenge to overcome – a riding competition that will push the bond between Poppy and her beloved pony Cloud to the limits.
Will the pair triumph against the odds?
And can Poppy turn detective and discover who owns the menacing hound that has been terrorising the moor before it kills again?
The Mystery of Riverdale Tor is the eighth book in the Riverdale Pony Stories, a pony adventure series enjoyed by young and old alike.
