Marty MacDonagh is the proud owner of a beautiful, champion Connemara mare named Veronica, who is due to give birth to her very first foal. Just as Veronica gives birth however, a wild whirlwind named the Cuaifeach envelops the stable ? and the new foal seems to have inherited the personality of the wild weather which surrounded his birth. A whirlwind from the very start, the young foal gets into all sorts of humorous mischief and causes all kinds of trouble. Will the pony-mad young Doreen be the one to tame him? An instant bestseller upon release, ?The Connemara Whirlwind? is a charming tale for children by Swedish author Ann Henning. Ann Henning Jocelyn was born in Sweden in 1948. Following the death of her father, Ann and her siblings were raised by their mother in remote and beautiful Ed on the Norwegian border. Ann thrived here - by the age of four she was reading, and by five she had written her very first story. The family moved closer to Gothenburg following her mother?s remarriage, where Ann struggled in the new environment and turned to her love of reading and writing for comfort. Ann wrote her very first book ?Honeylove the Bearcub? by the time she was seven, and by nine she had a story published in a magazine. Ann attended Gothenburg University to study Classical Architecture and Drama, before moving to London to study theatre and drama. In 1982, Ann moved to Connemara on the west coast of Ireland to focus on her writing, where she still lives today along with her husband. The area is well-known for its? ponies, and the creatures became part of Ann?s daily life, influencing her writing. Bestseller ?The Connemara Whirlwind?, about life in the pony world of Connemara, was followed by ?The Connemara Stallion? and ?The Connemara Champion?. Also a keen playwright and theatre advocate, Ann co-founded the Connemara Theatre Company which has shown several of her plays including ?Baptism of Fire? and ?The Alternative?.
