Herbert Jenkins, 1957, illus Peter Biegel
Paul and Grace Davis eventually manage to persuade their father to buy a pony for them. They think first that they will stable the pony at the local riding stable, but as they outbid the owner to buy Pepper, that won’t work. Mr Wasplin, the stable owner, and his star pupil Alicia do not leave Paul and Grace alone even after they have managed to find somewhere else to keep Pepper.
Many thanks to Sarah Beasley for the picture.
