“Patricia and Bill are spending their holidays in the New Forest, that land of wild ponies. Patricia “adopts” a foal, which she names Star. It soon becomes apparent, however, that others have their eyes on star, too – unpleasant eyes; cold, calculating eyes; eyes which judge horseflesh simply on its potential value as meat … So, aided by two new friends, Fiona and Freddy, they determine not only to save Star but to put an end to the whole nasty business altogether – and in doing so (thanks largely to the inventive Freddy’s wonderful radio contrivance) find that they have stopped something that was far, far bigger than they knew.”
