Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

K-Gr. 3. Exquisite watercolors realistically depict the rugged terrain of northern Iceland where young Anna lives with Prince, the pony she raised from a foal. Anna is distressed to learn that Prince is to leave the farm and join the herd at the summer pasture. Despite reassurances that her pony will be fine and needs to run with the other horses, Anna worries about his safety away from her and the shelter of the farm. Her fears prove well founded when an older stallion challenges Prince and kicks him over a cliff. Miraculously, a soft, mossy ledge breaks Prince's fall. When the shaken, but unharmed, pony makes his way back to the herd, the formerly confrontational stallion accepts him with newly won respect. Horse-enamored youngsters will relish this spare, beautifully illustrated story that colors the plot of a girl's love for her horse with Icelandic mountain lore. Ellen Mandel

Beautifully written by Krista Ruepp, Winter Pony is the story of a special bond between a young girl named Anna, and an Icelandic pony she calls Prince. But the pony is a winter pony - come summer, he must travel with his herd to the mountains, and leave Anna behind. A glimmer of Norse mythology is reflected in the storytelling, enhanced with rapturous color illustrations by Ulrike Heyne which bring to life a timeless and classically beautiful story of trust and friendship.
