A marching band come across a range of unsuitable animals in their search for a mascot until they find Mary and her pony. First printed in 1978 with a school stamp from 1991, making this book at least 22 years old at our school and by no means the oldest. Some parents who went to the school as kids are now bringing back the same turgid rubbish that they had to read. Old books aren't a problem if they're as charming as this one but many just aren't worth rescuing with cellotape.
