Morgan and Me

Serendipity Press, MN, 1975, 32 pp, illus Robin James


The blurb:

A young princess with a penchant for postponing activities learns not to procrastinate.

Stephen Cosgrove is an amazingly prolific author: he’s written over 300 books to date. He’s written a unicorn series - Morgan - and various other pony-related titles, which tend towards the fantastic edge of the spectrum .As far as I can see, his titles are generally directed at the youngest of readers: the sheer amount he’s written argues that they have a pretty strong appeal, but I admit they’re Marmite to me.


Finding the books: most appear easy to find, and some are available directly from the author. Some are staggeringly expensive.
