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

“I don’t know how you make such a pretty book that has heart and wisdom and also a farting pony, but Kate Beaton does, and we are lucky that she does.” Jon Klassen, creator of the HAT books

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
