Harrap, London, 1959, 208 pp. Illus Sheila Rose
The book opens with Geoffrey, Felicia, Simon and Loraine Knox making their separate ways from school to Lancashire, where they spend holidays with their aunt, who has a stud farm. Simon wants to look after his animals; Loraine to paint, but Felicia wants only to ride, and it looks as if this will be scuppered as a party of boys are also coming to stay. After initial disasters when they meet the boys, things calm down, and they all go to a point to point and co-operate in rescuing a horse stuck on the quicksands.
