Product Description


"Brilliant" (The Times)

"If you're looking for classy pony stories, there is only one place to go - to the grande dame of children's fiction, K M Peyton . . . who has produced more than fifty exquisitely written stories . . . just as with Rumer Godden or Eva Ibbotson, Peyton's stories for nine-year-olds and over are so richly satisfying that they are perfect, too, for nostalgia-starved adults" (Lorna Bradbury Daily Telegraph)

"It’s like being young again . . . I have been gorging myself on all three Swallow stories, published in one volume . . . just the way you want children’s books to be" (Bookwitch)

Book Description

Three classic pony stories from one of our most beloved writers, collected together for the first time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab Read! 20 April 2013
By Jan
Ms Peyton's award winning stories have been loved by huge numbers of young readers since they first appeared in print several decades ago. Here in one glorious volume are the three stories about Rowan and the beautiful dark horse she discovers on the road one evening not long after her family left London and came to live in the country. She gives him the name Swallow, and even though the horse will never really belong to her and it is difficult horse to ride, Rowan loves this animal unreservedly. These stories are beautifully written, the characters are totally believable and lovable and the plots tell us lots about the joys and problems of living in the country.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly 'recommended 30 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Rowan and the other characters. Well paced with believable characters including the horses/ ponies. Stories to suit the pony mad of almost any age from perhaps 12 yeas upwards.
