Borrowed from Bridget this week

A lovely book and perfect time-off read (I read it in bed with a cup of Earl Grey this morning).  Set on a fictional island in the English Channel, in WW2, two children and their ponies are threatened by the impending arrival of German troops.  The English are usually OK, the French might be… and some of the Germans are nice, with all of the people  nicely characterised.  An exciting but believable plot and, of course, ponies, make this a great read.
