SUMMARY: Part of the Perfect Tales for Pony Lovers series, in which various authors have written pony stories for younger readers.
In this story Katie looks out of the window one night to find a pony in her garden! Moonlight has been ill-treated and abandoned and Katie wants to help him, but it seems he has been made vicious by his treatment. Just when it seems all hope is lost, help comes from a young Downs Syndrome boy.
Paperback original. Still in print and available new from UK booksellers. Used copies are also easy to find in the UK. Harder to find in the USA, although the odd copy or two may be floating around. But as the books are cheap to buy from the UK, getting hold of a copy will not be too troublesome for American readers.
