I know we are still discussing our first book but thought we could maybe start thinking about our next one. We have had a request for Prince Among Ponies or Janet Must Ride. Anyone fancy either of these/got the books. I am happy with either of these choices, let me know what the rest of you think.
I would like Prince Among Ponies as I don't have a copy of Janet Must Ride any more and Prince Among Ponies is an interesting and provocative one. I would like to do the Henry and Noel series and the Woodbury series at some time (in sections of course).
Yes, I must say would like Prince as havent read it in yonks. I think it would be nice if we did one each of the PT sisters then we could compare their styles. Yes Fizz i agree we MUST do the Noel and henry books some time in the future.
Oh YES please. Prince among Ponies is one of the ones that I practically know by heart, as I read it at least twice a year!! Good contrast to the BPI as well, as I think it excels in the points I criticised them on.(Oooops sorry, jumping the gun again!)
Rescuing one animal does not change the world, but the world surely changes for that one animal.
Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring- it was peace ~
Just to let you know as we seem in concensus of opinion bout Prince Among Ponies, I will set it up as our next reading circle book. This time I will try and set up the poll and thread together. I think the book is a good choice as it has a lot of interesting stuff in it, also garej has already reviewed it in her blog so maybe she could add in a few comments!
Hi all.. Does anyone know if the Hardback and paperback are different..? ie; Is the paperback abridged..? I haven't read it since childhood and am really looking forward to reading it.. Sarah , I have both a hardback and paperback so could spare one..Where are you.?
Janet Must Ride is OK by me tho I warn you haffyfan its not my favourite so will prob be getting up your nose again by criticising it ;D My favs to do would be I Wanted a Pony or Riding With the Lyntons, but dont mind doing Janet as havent read it as any times as the others.
Garej I love the Boy and the Donkey too but you are right I dont think everyone will have it.

cally: Oh I see how this works now- don't press the return button, eejit. How do I start to write a pony book having read hundreds, and not accidentally or intentionally accidentally 'borrow' ideas?

aud: Can anyone tell me if they know of a Pony book that has a story line with A nesting Pair of Osprey Birds(thats as well as Ponies)i have been told it is either Alisons Island Adventure by Sheila Stewart or one of the Jinney books by patricha Leitch.

tali: One of the Jinny books has a sub story line of egg stealing so may be the one you are thinking of. It is one of the books that features the character Claire Burnley.

ginslinger: It is one of the early Jinny books. I only read the first few and I found the storyline upsetting.
