Rosemary Griffin

British author. Like many authors in  the genre, she wrote her first book,
The Ponies Loved it Too, as a teenager along with fellow youthful friend Paddy Miles. The other two pony books were written by her alone. I am not sure what became of her writing partner, who does not appear to have written anything else.

All three books have nice covers by excellent equine illustrators. They are all of the holiday adventure ilk, full of riding, camping and solving mysteries.

Collectors info:
Sadly only The Ponies Loved it Too is illustrated fully throughout, the other two only containing a colour frontispiece. They are not particularly common titles but still fairly easy to find in the UK. Also usually pretty low cost.  Harder to get hold of elsewhere but not impossible and once again can be reasonably priced.
