For anyone who's ever been saddled with a truly terrible present, The Princess and the Pony is a laugh-out-loud story of overcoming first impressions and falling in love with one unforgettable roly-poly pony.

"It's a smart, brisk story that tosses aside conventional ideas of what princesses (and ponies) are "supposed" to be." -Publishers Weekly starred review
