Jessica, Ann, Martin and their mother move out of London into the New
Forest. They are determined to have a pony of their own, and in the end,
through an enormous amount of hard work, they manage to save up the

involve themselves in a death-or-glory effort to save a nearby Colonel’s
house from burglary, thereby revealing some very old family secrets.
