Hilda’s Adventures

Hilda is in a furious temper: no one has caught Red for her, he is at the end of the paddock covered in mud, and she has to ride to school in her oilskins despite the blazing day.

Hilda is in a furious temper: no one has caught Red for her, he is at the end of the paddock covered in mud, and she has to ride to school in her oilskins despite the blazing day. And Hilda has done nothing about the maths test that morning. Then she gets mixed up with Lizzie Meakin, whose father has threatened to sell her horse, Peirrot. Hilda and her friends manage to rescue Pierrot, and then Lizzie has to try and prove his worth at the local show.
