A timeless children's classic,
This review is from: Black Hunting Whip (Armada Pony Series) (Paperback)
One of the most evocative of Monica Edwards' Punchbowl Farm series, this book is beautifully written and weaves an enjoyable, realistic story which appeals to all ages. The author is a rare children's writer, particularly for the era (1950's) who wrote for children as equals. She skilfully weaves adult and child perspectives into her writing is a way that avoids either condescension or over simplification.
My mother read this book as a child in the 1950's, I read it in the 1970's and my daughters have read it in the 2000's. Buy it if you can find it.
