Here's this month's horse and pony book releases.
Kate O’Hearn - Pegasus and the Fight for Olympus
I’m looking forward to the next episode in this Greek gods meet modern day America saga, having enjoyed the first book, Pegasus and the Flame, very much. At the end of the first volume, Olympus had been saved, though surely only temporarily as the Nirads were still very much alive and well.
Jenny Oldfield - Black Pearl Ponies
Jenny Oldfield’s latest series is out this month. As far as I can see,two titles are released this month: Red Star and Wildflower. It’s another series set in America, on a ranch, a formula which has been extremely successful for Jenny Oldfield before.
Tracy Dockray - Lost and Found Pony
Feiwell & Friends, £10.49. Tracy Dockray, who has illustrated books by Beverly Cleary, has her own book out at the end of July. The cover certainly looks promising.
Pippa Funnell - Tilly's Pony Tails 14: Buttons: the Naughty Pony
Out on 7 July, it’s episode 14 in Pippa’s series, which shows no sign of slowing down.
Christine Pullein-Thompson - Phantom Horse series
The Phantom Horse series has gone through a fair few printings, most recently by Award,who have commissioned another edition, with covers by Jennifer Bell, probably best known for her illustrations for Stabenefeldt, as well as her lovely book for J A Allen, The Allen Book of Drawing and Painting Horses. Two of the original titles in the Phantom Horse series have been changed: Phantom Horse Goes to Ireland and Phantom Horse Goes to Scotland are now Phantom Horse Disappears and Phantom Horse Island Mystery.
