SUMMARY: Guin and Margaret are looking forward to revisiting the place where last hols they had made friends, hired ponies and had lots of fun. But this time there are two strangers: the conceited Fabian and his younger brother. Fabian is scornful of horses and asserts that bikes are much better. So the two sets of children set off on a trek, ponies versus bikes...who will win?
PONYMAD RATING: 3 HORSESHOES
Steeple Folly is a bit of an oddity: it has been published twice with different dustjackets, but I am not sure which s the reprint as both are claimed to be first editions. It is reasonably rare but can be found without a huge amount of trouble in the UK, although it may be pricey. Horseshoes and Handlebars is much easier to find, especially the Book Club reprint, and is usually low cost. The books are harder to find in the USA but not impossible.
