Cecilia Knowles

British children's author whose books often have an animal and/or a Scottish theme. As far as I know she wrote just the two pony books. Also wrote a non-fictional book about the history of an area of Hampshire.

Pony Books:

HUA MA THE FLOWER PONY

Collectors info:
Although not common, Hippo can be found on the internet  (in the UK) without too much trouble. Hua Ma is a bit harder to find. They are usually reasonably priced however. Very rare outside of the UK.
