The second book in an exciting new junior fiction series inspired by true stories from the Wilson Sisters' childhoods. The adventure continues — training a street pony into a show pony!

In the second Showtym Adventure, Kelly receives an unbroken pony. Will she gain the confidence to train and ride her?

When nine-year-old Kelly Wilson outgrows her pony, her mum surprises her with a beautiful steel-grey mare that she spotted trotting down the street, tied to the back of a truck. But there’s a catch. Cameo has never been ridden!

While her sisters Vicki and Amanda are jumping higher than ever before, Kelly must face her fears on an untested pony. Will Cameo ever be ready for competitions? And will the girls’ ponies hold their own against the purebreds at the Royal Show?

A sequel to Dandy, the Mountain Pony, this exciting story of setbacks and success, in which Vicki, Kelly and Amanda Wilson first experience the thrill of serious competition, is inspired by the Wilson sisters’ early years.

Yesterday I went and bought Cameo, The Street Pony. I couldn't put it down and finished it in a day. It is an amazing story on how to overcome fear, and the journey it takes you on is overall amazing. I love how Kelly has her list and Vicki is more than happy to help (although Amanda's cheekiness is some of the best)! I cannot wait for the next book and Kelly's books just keep on getting better and better.
