Mies Bouhys (1928–2008) was a Dutch author, scriptwriter and television director. She was a prize winning poet, but was best known for her children’s books. Co-author of The Little Red Pony (1960), Antonia Ridge (1895–1981) was a broadcaster and writer, and was also Dutch born. She was educated in the Netherlands and England, and received the Writer’s Guild Award in 1969 for a radio play. Bouhuys and Ridge collaborated on several titles: Hurrah for a Dutch Birthday and Melodia as well as The Little Red Pony.
Finding the books
Not as reasonably priced as they once were, but still fairly easy to find.
