Billy Bunker and the pony Nibs had been together until Nibs was sent to the country to be the playmate of Muriel and John Frazer. Then, by a chance, Billy manages to get a job in the Frazer’s house, and is re-united with Nibs.
Ethel Nokes was active from the 1930s to the 1950s, writing several children’s stories. Several of her works were published by The Religious Tract Society, so were presumably evangelical in character.
Finding the books: Nibs is extraordinarily hard to find, but her other books are easy to find, and usually reasonably priced.
