The book looks charming but don't worry, I don't want to buy it. I've just been reading some book reviews from 1949/50. One reviewer praises The Midnight Horse by Monica Edwards but says of Jill's Gymkhana, 'you will not want to read it again'. After all this time, I think she's been proved wrong.
Phew - I've finished it. And someone has bought it. There are some really delicious illustrations which I must photograph before it goes.callmemadam. Ha. Every time I read Jill I find new bits I appreciate!
