From the dust jacket:
"A delightfully told story of the life and adventures of an Exmoor pony and the young people associated with him. Hints on riding and caring for a pony are unobtrusively woven through the story in a way which will both interest and teach, but it is not a case of a powder with the jam. Children and 'grown-ups' too will like 'Moorland Mousie' for the charm of the story and for Mr. Lionel Edwards' altogether attractive illustrations."
