It’s a race to the finish as Winchesterfield gets set for the annual show
Alice-Miranda has a birthday to celebrate and a village show to look forward to! One of the highlights of the Winchesterfield show is the Queen’s Cup horserace. But Aunty Gee’s prize racehorse, Rockstar, is refusing to leave the stables. That is, until Alice-Miranda introduces him to her own naughty pony, Bonaparte.
Preparations for the show are coming along well until a series of thefts rocks the community. Things quickly go from bad to worse when Alice-Miranda’s beloved Bony is horse-napped. Can Alice-Miranda uncover the culprit and get her horse back in time for Rockstar to compete in the race?
