What a marvelous article. Imagine being asked to tea by your favorite authors! I never heard of the PT sisters and their books as a kid (being in the US) so I still have a lot of catching up to do. I love even just reading the stories of the PT girls growing up--such wonderful anecdotes (swapping out the riding gear at the gymkhanas!).
Yes - it's a world away from the girls in National Velvet and their muslins at the local show, which is the picture strongest in my mind at the moment whenever anyone mentions a show!I have to admit I was lucky enough to meet both PTs, and it was great!
Popescu is an unusual surname! Did Christine marry a Romanian?I had a book by Charlotte Popescu as a kid, but can't remember the name of it.Diana was my favourite P-T.Liz (sorry, I'm not logged in on this computer)
Charlotte Popescu wrote a pony care book, I think. I might even still have it lurking somewhere!
Didn't Charlotte Popescu also edit a Pony Quiz Book?
Yep, you're right. I think I have that too!
Oh, how amazing to meet them. It's a chance to look into a lost world, isn't it? I Wanted a Pony and Three Ponies and Shannan were my favourites. I still love them.
I'm not usually that keen on Liz Jones articles but I have to say that she has found her forte with this. It was very good and I was intrigued by the lives of the sisters and the books, too.
I'm not a Liz Jones fan but liked the article. Except for the fact that it's Ruby FERGUSON and not Ruby FLEMING who wrote the Jill series!
I am intrigued now never having read anything by Liz Jones. What's she like? (Says she, too lazy to go and look.....)
