Jackie the Pit Pony
Originally published as Hänschen in der Grübe, Ensslin & Laiblin Verlag, Reutlingen

Oxford University Press, London, 1958, illus Ulrik Schramm


Jackie is a pony from the Steppes: freedom means everything to him, and he refuses to be
tamed by the farmer who owns him. So, they sell him to a man who owns a mine. Although he likes
the mine owner’s daughter, he rebels again when he is set to work, but at least he realises there
are other things in life besides the sun.
