Alexia and her brother Brad travel out beyond Yass River to bring home Duchess, the beautiful black pony with the four white socks.

The clever Duchess has many pony tricks in store for her new family, but proves to be very brave, when things go amiss at Pony Club Camp.

Alexia dreams of competing with Duchess at the annual Royal Show, but there are lots of obstacles to jump first!


Derina's hectic career in national cultural institutions in Australia and a 6-year stint on a UNESCO Committee makes her cherish the time she now spends on her farm in Australia with her two sons, ponies and cats. She has won accolades for script writing in Canada and the UK. Derina was presented with the Charlotte Waring Barton Mentorship Award by the Children's Book Council of Australia NSW branch in November 2015. She continues to pen children's stories that create a world of horsey challenges for children to escape into. Her earlier career included science radio talks for ABC Radio. She has a passion for gardening and cooking for friends. She still rides horses for pleasure when possible and judges at horse shows. She is currently dedicating time to a historical fiction novel on the development of horticulture in Victorian Australia.
