The Alison Lester Collection contains five classic stories from one of Australia's most beloved children's authors, Alison Lester. My Farm: Alison Lester grew up on a farm by the sea. This is her story of a memorable year, the year of the palomino pony. Affectionate, funny and full of adventure, My Farm gives a vivid picture of a child's life on the land. Imagine: Imagine yourself deep in the jungle, under the sea, in a land of ice and snow, on a farm, in the moonlit bush, on an African plain, in a prehistoric swamp.
Magic Beach: Imagine a perfect beach where you can swim, surf, splash through the waves, make sandcastles, hunt for treasure, explore rock pools, muck about in boats, fish from the jetty, and build a bonfire under the stars. Noni the Pony: Would you like to meet Noni? She is the friendliest pony. She lives on a farm overlooking the sea and loves to play with her best friends Dave Dog and Coco the Cat. Noni the Pony Goes to the Beach: Come to the beach with Noni - the nicest pony you could ever meet - in this purely delightful rhyming story for young children.
