Hodder & Stoughton, 1979, illus Susan Hunter

“The Blackbirds feel they can’t wait nine whole weeks for the next gymkhana – so they decide to organise their own. Easier said than done, for there are a number of problems to surmount – where will they hold it? What about judges? And prizes? There are also other difficulties. A young and inexperienced neighbour is determined to tag along too, and the Blackbirds encounter the formidable Mrs Tavener, who is set on ruining their carefully laid plans. However, a dramatic event suddenly turns the jinxed gymkana into a big success.”
