Pony Patch

Pony Patch: Naughty Norton

The Norton Pony series follows the adventures of Molly and her naughty pony, Norton. These are four funny, quirky, contemporary books for young horse lovers, together for the first time in one volume.

“As well as text which is fast-paced, humorous and sly, the book’s appeal is increased by the frequent and lively black and white illustrations which cleverly tell a different story to those of the text.”
— Dianne Bates, Buzz Words

The Riding High and Pony Patch series are now on sale in the USA through Capstone Publishers, with new covers and renamed as the Ridgeview Riding Club and Pony Tales.

The Pony Patch series is published in Australia by black dog books.
