Description

See below for English description.

La princesse Prunelle n'a qu'un vou pour son anniversaire cette année : qu'on lui offre un cheval. Un grand cheval musclé qui serait digne d'une princesse guerrière. Or, le jour venu, on ne lui offre pas exactement le cheval de ses rêves.

 

Princess Prunelle knows exactly what she wants for her birthday this year: a horse! A big, strong horse fit for a warrior princess! But when the day arrives, she doesn't quite get the horse of her dreams . . . For anyone who's ever been saddled with a truly terrible present, La princesse et le poney is a laugh-out-loud story of overcoming first impressions and falling in love with one unforgettable roly-poly pony.

Original title: The Princess and the Pony

Editorial Reviews

«Je ne sais vraiment pas comment on arrive à inventer une histoire aussi réconfortante et pleine de sagesse en parlant d'un poney qui pète, mais Kate Beaton y est parvenue, et il faut s'en réjouir! »~ Jon Klassen, gagnant de la médaille Caldecott et créateur de Ce n'est pas mon chapeau et Rendez-moi mon chapeau!
