The Lovereading4Kids comment

Nobody can resist a cute pony, not even the toughest fighters! Little Princess Pinecone wants a warrior’s horse for her birthday – big, fast, strong – so she’s dismayed when her parents give her the opposite –a sweet, round, farting pony! But on the first day of battle, the pony proves remarkably successful in the field, and in a totally unexpected way. The Manga style cartoon illustrations are wonderfully expressive and filled with hilarious details, while the daft story has a logic all of its own. Princesses, let alone their ponies, are not normally like this!

Synopsis

The Princess and the Pony by Kate Beaton

With deadpan humour and a delicious turn of the page, Kate Beaton's warmhearted tale of an adorably flatulent, unforgettable pony is sure to make both children and adults roar with laughter.

Fall in love with a teeny-tiny, roly-poly, cutie pie of a farting pony in this wickedly funny tale from Kate Beaton, the artist behind the comic phenomenon Hark! A Vagrant.

Reviews
