Lauren is almost sure that Moonshine, the scruffy grey pony at the dealer's stable, is another secret unicorn who hasn't yet found a unicorn friend to turn her into her magical shape. Feeling sorry for the lonely pony, Lauren pays her a visit and is surprised to see a strange boy talking softly to Moonshine and stroking her. Michael explains that he loves ponies but his foster parents won't let him have one because, among other things, they live in the city. Lauren and her unicorn, Twilight, are certain that Michael is the special friend that Moonshine needs and are determined to unite them before the summer holidays end and Michael has to return home.
Linda Chapman learned to ride when she was three. Her first pony was Swizzle, a stubborn Welsh Mountain Pony who she used to imagine was a unicorn. Unfortunately, Swizzle behaved nothing like the Twilight of her stories! When Linda is not writing she trains dogs and teaches drama - and of course rides whenever she can. Linda lives in Leicestershire.
