From Christian Trimmer and bestselling illustrator Jessie Sima comes an adorable and imaginative twist on the tale of Snow White…with lots more ponies!
Sweet Snow Pony is loved by all for her beautiful coat as white as snow and her mane as black as ebony. Children come to her farm from all over just to have her braid their hair and teach them line dancing.
But not loves Snow Pony. Jealous Queenie hatches an evil plan to make Snow Pony run away from the stable by planting a trail of apples into the woods and before long Snow Pony is lost! Full of delicious apples but all alone in the woods, Snow Pony stumbles upon the home of seven miniature ponies. The mini-ponies couldn’t be cuter, especially with Snow Pony’s braids, but they don’t have quite the same moves as the kids back on the farm.
Will her new friends help her find her way home? Or will the evil Queenie get her way?
A fun, fractured fairytale with twists, and humor both kids and adults will appreciate. The illustrations for this picture book are adorable. The seven ponies definitely add to the over all humor. The story itself is one that will resonate with kids, especially the ending.
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen
Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
