to the Highland Show to perform one last time.
There they meet a circus ringmaster looking for
a special Shetland pony for a new act -- will Adam and Haki begin a new life in the circus?

Full of adventure, friendship and Scottish charm,
Haki the Shetland Pony is a classic children's tale by much-loved author Kathleen Fidler.


'First published in 1968, this Kathleen Fidler classic shows that ingredients of a captivating children's story have changed very little... Fidler's human and historical observations remain enlightening, as does her understanding of the dilemmas faced by young islanders.'
