G G Harrap & Co, London, 1937, illus by the author
This is a sort of cross between a fairy tale and a pony book: Dumpling is a fat, slow pony, andAnnabel is rather round too. She loves Dumpling though, and buys him, though the two of them are the butt of Pony Club jokes from the other girls. However, she meets an old man called Fairey who helps her look after Dumpling, and who grows marvellous beans, which, when fed toDumpling have a wonderful effect on his constitution and make him a winner.
Many thanks to Andy Brown for the picture.
