Summer Pick: The Princess and the Pony

August 7, 2017


The Princess and the Pony

by Kate Beaton for Scholastic

Picture Book


What's it about?

Aspiring warrior Princess Pinecone wants nothing more than a horse for her birthday -- and her parents deliver. Sort of. Her new roly-poly pony is better suited to a petting zoo than battle. But when the big day arrives, the pony -- and all the other warriors -- might just surprise her!


Why do we love it?

It's probably no surprise by now that we're big fans of girl power stories -- and even bigger fans of stories that promote diversity and inclusion. Beaton takes all these themes and twists them into a funny, sweet, irreverent tale that encourages kids to challenge preconceived notions.  And we love  Beaton's illustration style; with such a depth of detail and color, they feel like animation cels!



We want more:

Beaton has released a plush of the adorable cuddly pony here. Next up, may we request some of those adorable cozy warrior sweaters?


(And more ongoing adventures of Princess Pinecone and her pony, please!)
