Blackbirds and the Gift Pony

Sally’s parents were going to the USA, and she had to stay behind. The only compensation, she thought, is that she would be allowed to ride Neill’s pony.

Hodder & Stoughton, 1978, illus Susan Hunter

Sally’s parents were going to the USA, and she had to stay behind. The only compensation, she thought, is that she would be allowed to ride Neill’s pony. However, Neill is vile, and unless his mother is watching, Sally’s not allowed near the pony. Then Sally meets a strange lady who gives her a pony, and this leads her t othe Blackbirds Pony group (Neill’s sworn enemies).  There’s doubt though about whether the pony is really hers. Neill certainly doesn’t think so.
