Jill series of pony books by Ruby Ferguson were some of my favourite books as a child. Jill Crewe  bright and resourceful – like all good heroines – but there’s a dry humour that has always made me laugh. It’s probably why I’ve always had a soft spot for Noel Fielding in Josephine Pullein Thompson’s pony club series (also published by Fidra), who has similarly wry tone and habit of quoting poetry at apt moments.  My original Knight paperbacks with their rosette covers are very special to me.

We’ve already brought out the first two titles in the Jill series – Jill’s Gymkhana (reprinting and available again in two to three weeks) and A Stable For Jill – and I’m really pleased that we now have finished copies of Jill Has Two Ponies ready to send to customers ordering directly.  Copies will be at our wholesalers warehouse ready to be sent out to bookshops within the next week.

It’s been a stressful year or two – more on that another time perhaps – but now that we’ve sold the bookshop business and are able to concentrate on publishing again, it’s great to see this book back in print and I’m looking forward to having the rest of the series follow soon, as well as titles by our other authors.
