About the Author

Eve Paege totally understands the frustration of being pony-crazy but pony-less. As a child, her weekends and school holidays were spent helping out at the local riding stables in exchange for an occasional lesson. After school, having dashed off her homework, summer evenings were spent schooling her Space Hopper over show jumps made from bamboo canes and flower pots in her parents’ back garden! Eve finally bought her own horse after she left college and started her first job. Despite many setbacks and competitive calamities, she went on to become an accomplished event rider and show jumper before finally gravitating to dressage as her specialism. She spent many happy years on the national dressage circuit riding competitively and officiating as a knowledgeable and highly respected dressage judge. Her love of horses, animals and the countryside shines through in her writing as does her wealth of experience and wonderfully warm sense of humour. Eve lives in the wilds of Cheshire with her dog and cat; surrounded of course by horses!

Format: Paperback
It is quite a tricky proposition for an author to combine a traditional type story and traditional values with a style modern enough to keep today's children interested. If I won a Pony is firmly in the mould of the traditional pony story. It contains all the stalwart plot strands of the old pony stories, from winning a pony in a competition, to rescuing a neglected animal, to saving a pony from the knackers. It also celebrates a lot of the good values that the older pony story used to expound.

However Eve Paege has written it in a way that will really appeal to the modern child reader. She injects such a fast pace into the story that even easily bored readers will be swept along. There is plenty of horsy action and scenarios in the story from auctions, to schooling, to hacking, to competitions, to horse rescue, people rescue... and lots, lots more! The author has packed a lot into this book and again this will encourage easily distracted young readers to keep on turning the pages. For the older/adult reader this will perhaps be a little too frenetic and I must say all that galloping about the countryside left me a bit exhausted! But the author has managed the mix of traditional and modern just right to appeal to her target audience.

I also really like the underlying humour of the book, which has some great comic characters such as the pink-obsessed journalist and the wig-wearing `PC Plod' character, who reminds me a little of Mr. Goon in the old Enid Blyton mystery stories. This light-hearted tone again will appeal to the modern young reader.

In short, this is a good combination of traditional plot lines and values within the framework of a modern, light-hearted and fast-paced story.
