Coco Caramel Synopsis

Coco is the youngest of the Tanberry sisters but she's as headstrong as any of them. Coco is crazy about animals and loves her riding lessons. When Caramel, her favourite pony at the stables, is sold, Coco scopes out the new owner - and she's not happy about what she discovers. With big sister Honey going off at the deep end and Summer only just recovering from her eating disorder, there's no-one at Tanglewood to help Coco out. Can Coco save Caramel alone - or will a new friend help her?

A perfect next step for fans of Jacqueline Wilson, by the bestselling author of Scarlett, Dizzy, Angel Cake and Ginger Snaps.

You can find videos of all the Tanberry sisters on Cathy Cassidy TV!

But when his beloved dog Sheba goes missing he and Coco are once again mixed up in a daring animal rescue...
