Follyfoot

Written by Monica Dickens

Follyfoot Synopsis

Follyfoot Farm is a retirement home for old or unwanted horses, invariably horses rescued from a cruel fate or cruel owners. It's run by the Colonel who is helped by his stepdaughter, Callie, and two stable-hands, Dora and Steve. These three youngsters have plenty to do at the stables, but can always find time to get involved in the mysteries and adventures that abound at Follyfoot.

This will be greeted with delight by pony-loving children who are starved of well-written horse stories. * The Bookseller * A welcome reissue of the nineteen-seventies classic proves that it hasn't dated at all: good stories, wonderful characters and some animals you'll love. Definitely recommended. -- Sue Magee * TheBookbag.co.uk * A pony lovers dream - this heart-warming story stands the test of time brilliantly. -- Julia Eccleshare * Lovereading4kids * Its narrative pace and inventiveness never fail to command the reader's interest. -- Rebecca Butler * armadillomagazine.com * A classic of horsiness . . . with an eye-catching photo cover * The School Librarian *
