A farting pony, a racially and culturally diverse cast, a mixed race main character as a young princess with a desire to be a champion warrior only for her birthday, instead of a warhorse, she receives an adorable little pony. Sounds good so far.

Really fun story. Positive, creative and funny. Kate's art is distinctive and delightful. ( )

This book was okay; I just find the word "fart" (which the pony in question does frequently) to be offputting. Kids, however, will love this. Kate Beaton's art is pretty great as always.

A perfect story before a person birthday. The setting of this story takes place back during medival times. The story of a princess who knows exactly what she wants for her birthday. However, she is given the opposite of what she wants. The princess has a big battle coming up. She takes her new pony to the battle and knows its not going to end well. Just then she is being approached by a fierce warrior she doesn't think she will make it but she stand her ground and so does her pony. He makes the cutest biggest eyes and makes the brave warrior melt. All the warrior come to pet her new pony. Princess realizes she has a new pony with a new weapon. Cuteness. I'm not sure how to use this book in the classroom. Certainly would have it my classroom library. Girl power. ( )

A sweet story about a princess who asks for a mighty horse for her birthday so she can be a warrior, but instead gets a pony. Cute illustrations and storyline with an even better ending.

Introducing Kate Beaton, a major new picture book talent, and author/illustrator of #1 New York Times bestseller Hark! A Vagrant!

Princess Pinecone knows exactly what she wants for her birthday this year. A BIG horse. A STRONG horse. A horse fit for a WARRIOR PRINCESS! But when the day arrives, she doesn't quite get the horse of her dreams...

From the artist behind the comic phenomenon Hark! A Vagrant, The Princess and the Pony a laugh-out-loud story of brave warriors, big surprises, and falling in love with one unforgettable little pony.

(retrieved from Amazon Fri, 03 Jul 2015 02:56:40 -0400)

Princess Pinecone would like a real war horse for her birthday, instead of which she gets a plump, cute pony--but sometimes cuteness can be a kind of weapon, especially in a fight with dodgeballs and spitballs and hairballs and squareballs.
