Pamela Rogers

British author of whom I know very little. She wrote a number of children's books, mainly aimed at younger children. A few of these were pony or donkey themed.

If anyone can provide more information about the author I would love to hear from you.

Collectors Info:
Although not commonly seen most of the books are reasonably easy to find in the UK on the internet and usually low cost. The Playing Field Horses seem to be a little rarer than the others. All quite hard to find elsewhere.
