Polonius the Pit Pony

by Richard O'Neill, illustrated by Feronia Parker-Thomas - £6.99  Child's Play International Ltd (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781786281852 | ISBN 10: 1786281856

When Polonius the pit pony escapes from the coal mine he’s worked in all his life, he joins a family of Travellers. Although he enjoys the freedom and the fresh air that their lifestyle offers, he wishes he could give something back to the family in return.
 
When the chance arrives for him to do something to help, he rises to the challenge, and uses his intelligence and skills to save the day.
 
Based on true events and retold by a master of the oral tradition, this story bears witness to the Traveller values of independence, initiative, courage and hard work.
