A young girl arrives at a cottage in Cornwall and gets drawn into an eerie adventure. At times this tale reminded me of Elidor, with apparently explicable weather events perhaps caused by an outside force.
Our heroine has to stay with her aunt for a year, and the aunt loves painting horses and the sea. She often paints pale horses with a blue tinge, and eventually tells the reason. However the real life ponies owned by the neighbours are far more interesting and provide a lot of the action. Some

I have loved this book since I was 13.
It's about a girl who breaks a statue thing, and then an evil horse from the sea comes to seek revenge on her.
I enjoyed this series thoroughly and was sad to read the final book
R.I.P to the Author. I was luckily enough to receive an email from her before she died.

A solid childhood favourite which still has a deep, treasured place within my heart and imagination to this day. It sparked an almost obsessive fascination with nature, balance, mystery, and yes, horses. I must have read this no less than 10 times.
As I'd just read a number of short stories about Selkies, this really kept that mythic mood going yet made it fit in with reality in an intriguing way.

This is the book which made me discover 'libraries' and how they work. I had found the first copy in my school's limited collection, and I desperately wanted to read the rest of them. My life changed when I realised that 'libraries' have books, I have never looked back since.

I loved this book in year 6, it was ridiculously exciting and oen of my favourite books of all time.

I was so young when I read this, but I remember loving it. It was special and captivating - especially for a young mind. Even now I wouldn't mind going back to read it. It was magical.

I waited years for the next one after this, and even now I haven't read it. I hope to one day...

I love this book; it's about this girl who finds this statue that then tries to take revenge.
It's been a while since I've read this book, but I should re-read it.

This book could be kind of thin like the Animorph books but I know the plot is pretty cool. It's a good book overall.

She hated school so much, in fact—spending most lessons clandestinely writing stories—that she persuaded her parents to let her abandon her education at the age of fifteen and has never regretted it.

She continued to write and her first full-length novel was published when she
