Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-A sugary version of "Cinderella" for the "My Little Pony" (HarperCollins) set. Ponyella, whose coat is as white as a marshmallow, lives happily on her small farm, running and jumping as she pleases. But when the farm is sold, the new owner brings along his ponies, Plumpkin and Bun Bun. Ponyella now has to live in a small, smelly stall and pull a coal-filled cart all day. When it is announced that Princess Penelope is going to pick the winner of the Tippington 25th Annual Grand Royal Pony Championship, the step-ponies are groomed and driven to the show in a fancy trailer. Poor Ponyella, now as gray as a rain cloud from her sooty work, begins to cry. Suddenly, her fairy godmare appears and waves her wand, and Ponyella is beautifully groomed and wearing four diamond horseshoes. Of course, she is the star of the horse show, but when the clock strikes 12, she has to run, leaving a shoe behind so the traditional ending can happen. Munsinger does her best to make this bit of froth look good. Ponyella, Cooper, and the princess are charmingly drawn and the fairy godmare is surrounded with stars and pink cotton-candy clouds. The slight, predictable story may be enjoyed by girls who can't get enough of cutesy horse books, but most readers would be better off with one of the many other excellent versions of the story.-Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT (c) Copyright 2010.

It is a very cute edition of the beloved story of Cinderella.

While it's a bit above her reading level, my daughter knows the story well enough to read it to herself.

Would highly recommend for any little girl who is princess and loves horses.

In all fairness, my 6 year old daughter loves this book. I think it's one of the worst kids books I have read. The story idea is great, combining ponies and the traditional Cinderella story. That being said, the ponies that represent the stepsisters, Plumpkin and Bun Bun, are very mean, like "okay, okay, we get the idea" mean. Even my 6 year old has made comments about how mean they are. Also, there are other little overkills, like instead of going to a "ball", they go to the "25th Annual Grand Royal Pony Championship". Not a big deal, I know, but when you have to read this book over and over, it gets annoying. Really wanted to like it, just can't.

My 4 year old is obsessed with this book! Every time we went to the library she would pick it out, so I finally ordered it for her. Very cute and I definitely recommend it. The book is also sturdy (hardcover version) so it will hold up to her reading it everyday.

A fun twist on the classic Cinderella fairy tale
When Ponyella's ranch is sold, the new owners bring in two new ponies, Plumpkin and Bun Bun. They are very mean to Ponyella, making fun of her white coat and flowing mane. Then when Princess Penelope shows up looking for a champion pony at the Tippington 25th Annual Pony Championship, Plumpkin and Bun Bun tell Ponyella she is too dirty to go and she is left behind.
In this fantastic re-telling of the Cinderella fairy tale, Ponyella's fairy godmare shows up, turning an apple core into a horse trailer, a mouse into a driver, and Ponyella into a magnificent pony complete with diamond horseshoes, Ponyella soon makes her way to the Pony Championship. Once there, Plumpkin and Bun Bun don't recognize Ponyella and Penelope is amazed at how beautiful Ponyella's looks and how high she jumps. But when the clock strikes noon the magic runs out and Ponyella will have to rush home...losing her diamond horseshoe possibly her chance happily ever after.
A fun twist on the classic Cinderella fairy tale, Ponyella is filled with beautiful illustrations, ponies, and a little magic. A perfect read for all the little girls who ever wanted a pony of their own.
Recommended for readers age 1 and up.

My daughter seems to have "graduated" from picture books. She's much more interested in chapter books. But I checked this one out of the library anyway.

And she LOVED it!!! Immediately. We read it again and again. And it was so sad when we had to return it to the library (after renewing twice). So... What's a book-loving mama to do?? I bought our own copy!

While it's a bit above her reading level, my daughter knows the story well enough to read it to herself. And she does--regularly.

What is it about this book? I'm not sure... Maybe it's that she's an animal lover? That it's a retelling of a familiar story? That the pictures are beautiful? That the main character remains sweet but the "bad guys get it in the end"? That the story is whimsical and fun? I don't know.

But I do know that this book will be carried on to the next generation in our family... No doubt about it.

This is a sweet retelling of Cinderella, and has inspired my 7-year-old daughter to write stories and draw pictures all incorporating herself into the story. A definite favorite!

This book was given to us as a gift and my toddler sat down immediately and started to read it on the spot. She LOVES this book and will sit through the whole story. (That is pretty amazing for her when she can barely sit still for more than 2 minutes.) It is a very cute edition of the beloved story of Cinderella. It just fits the needs of one horse-crazed 21-month-old.

My 4 & 7 y/o girls were so excited when they got this book! The illustrations are beautiful, and it's a really cute spin on an already great story. :-)
