Alison Lester grew up on a farm by the sea in eastern Victoria.
My Farm is her story of a memorable year, the year she got a palomino pony for Christmas.
Trick-riding horses, mustering cattle, training the dog, competing at the local show, feeding calves, picking mushrooms, raising a baby wombat, building cubbies, cutting hay, swimming ponies in the dam, hypnotizing chooks ... all the activities through the seasons are depicted with child-like mischief and humour.
Affectionate, funny, and full of adventure, My Farm gives a vivid picture of a child's life in the country.
