Bob-a-Job Pony

One of those stories where you wonder at the total and utter contrast between mother and children.

William Heinemann Ltd, London, 1961, illus Clixby Watson

Tabby and her younger sister Anna-Jane, feisty characters both, are determined to earn the money to buy Peggy the pony, despite their straightened circumstances.  They are helped in this by Ian, Tabby’s friend, and hindered by Tabby’s mother’s belief that one should hide one’s true circumstances behind a veneer of respectability.
