'For me, it was love at first paragraph' Meg Rosoff

Rowan is desperate for a horse of her own, so when her father narrowly misses colliding with a dark, beautiful stray, she feels he was always supposed to be hers. But Swallow is as wild and spirited as his name, and fate threatens to tear them apart.

Three classic pony stories from one of our best-loved and most outstanding writers, now collected together for the first time.
