This charming, nostalgic memoir offers a glimpse into the lives of three remarkable sisters who went on to become household names to a generation of readers.The twins were Diana and Christine who, with their elder sister, Josephine, wrote more than 150 books, which have sold in their millions around the world. Fifty years after the joint publication of their first book, It Began with Picotee, the siblings wrote about their extraordinary childhood with lovable, but often unreliable animals and unforgettable humans.
Biographical note: Josephine, Diana and Christine Pullein-Thompson have been household names to generations of children since they published their first pony book in 1946, It Began with Picotee. Since then, the sisters have written over a hundred novels between them about ponies and horses. Christine and Josephine passed away in 2005 and 2014 respectively: they are survived by Diana who continues to write and keep animals.
