Biography

Shire, Poppy

There’s an absolute dearth of biographical information on author Poppy Shire: usually this means a pseudonym’s being used. If it is, I’m afraid I have no idea who’s lurking behind the name. A bit more fuel to this particular fire is given by the fact the books are described as 'a new perfectly-pitched and packaged magical series, guaranteed to enchant young readers.' I’m presuming this is a publisher-developed series where the writing was farmed out.

The result, the Magic Pony Carousel series, takes six girls, gives them each a horse from the magic carousel, and sets them off on adventures.

Finding the books
All the books are in print, and are very easy to find secondhand.
