Format: Paperback
Fly by Night was one of my favourite teenage reads and I was delighted to find this follow up. Now most certainly past teenage years and heading to middle age I found this had all the magic of Fly by Night with the added spice of the slight hint of a growing relationship between Ruth and Peter. A lovely read.

Brilliant follow up to the first book 'fly by night' - it continues the story of Ruth and her pony Fly as she eventually grows out of him and buys a second pony at auction who she seems to recognise although it has fallen on hard times! - a great read again.

A Kid's Review on 28 Feb. 2011
Format: Paperback
I loved this book and It's really exciting to read.Once I started reading I couldn't stop! Another amazing book before 'the team' is Fly-By-Night and a book after 'the team' is 'prove yourself a hero'. Km Peyton books are fabulous and I would highly recommend this book 'the team' an ideal book for horse lovers.I am only 10 but I just loved Fly-By-Night and The Team! The Team is a book about Ruth Hollis a girl who has outgrown her beloved pony Fly By Night and buys a new horse that she thinks is her friends old horse Toadhill Flax.Ruth is hurt by the reaction Peter McNair gives her when he knows Ruth has Toad.A brilliant book.Happy reading!

Fab book, love the characters and their interaction with each other. lots going on, and i highly reccommend it!

If you have read this book or want to read it, also i would reccommend buying 'Prove Yourself a Hero' by the same author, which is all about Jonathan, one of the secondary characters (and my personal favourite character of Peyton's) getting kidnapped for a ransom (it also includes lots of horse racing, so don't worry about that, horsy fans) and features Peter McNair (one of the main characters of this book) as an important character.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best horse books of all time! 12 Aug. 2004
By E. TeSelle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm sad that The Team, and K.M. Peyton's earlier book about Ruth, Fly-by-Night, are no longer in print. They should be! These books are so well written and the characters so carefully drawn; they are superior in every way not only to most horse books, but to most modern young adult books as well.

This book is accurate as regards British Pony Club, and wonderfully horsey, but it's also realistic. Ruth isn't a perfect rider OR a perfect person. She has flaws and problems, and a life that is sometimes rocky. She, Peter, and Jonathan are real people. Visit them again in Fly-by-Night, Free Rein, Prove Yourself a Hero, A Midsummer Night's Death, and the Pennington books (Pennington's Last Term, The Beethoven Medal, and Pennington's Heir).

5.0 out of 5 stars Any Horse-Crazy Gal Will Love This! 18 May 2013
By Beth Mason in NC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
K M Peyton penned one of my favorite childhood/adolescent books, "Fly-By-Night," about pony-crazy Ruth Hollis and her quest to ride. "The Team" is a sequel to 'Fly-By-Night.' And it's every bit as good! I was crazy for these books, growing up in the 1970's with no horsey friends. I felt a kinship with Ruth in wanting to ride English hunter-jumpers, despite my living in the small-town South. My folks weren't horse people, so I found books to be my only source of information.

Though I'm much older now, I still re-read both of these books occasionally to remember how it felt to yearn for horses and good tack and the opportunity to show. These books are good for young people, all the way up to adult, due to the fine writing and universal themes.

I'm SO glad that 'fidrabooks' has re-issued these excellent titles!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for the pony-mad 5 Jan. 2001
By poltroon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This sequel to "Fly By Night" is the account of Ruth, a bit older but just as impulsive, as she rescues Peter's former pony, Toadhill Flax, from an auction and struggles to get on with him well enough to ride in the Pony Club horse trials. Like K.M. Peyton's other works, it is authentically horsey with well-rounded characters, and with a fair dose of realism. I have read it many times and enjoy it more with each reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Personal Favorite Young Adult Selection 8 April 2013
By Holly Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The Team was a pre-teen favorite of mine. It was a wonderful book for a horse-crazy girl; Ruth Hollis was a sympathetic protagonist, easy to relate to and admire. I really enjoyed the story of Ruth acquiring her dream pony and learning so much from him. K. M. Peyton knew how to write a book to appeal to me, and thirty years later, the Ruth Hollis series and the Flambards series are still so enjoyable to read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great horse series.. from a kid! 29 Nov. 2004
By Brownie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Although I liked the first in the series Fly-By-Night better, The team was not far behind. With a tiny hint of romance towards the end, this book is great. I recoment reading fly by night first.

Peyton is one of the few horse authors I like, There are hardly any ohter writters that give a 'real' story.

If you liked these I recomend reading Bold Venture if you can find it, it may be out of print.
