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.
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.
