Review

"Pettersen's children's novella asks: What happens when a girl wants a horse more than anything? 

Suzy Jenkins is a 6-year-old girl who wants a pony for Christmas. She's come to understand that Santa just isn't sure whether she could handle taking care of such an animal. However, she's done her research, and she's believes she's more than ready to take on the responsibility when Santa finally brings her small horse.

As the holiday season progresses, she continues to get ready. She also charms Mr. Barrett, who owns a ranch and many racing horses, and Carl, an elderly man who appears not to have a home. In the end, Suzy finds herself at the center of a series of events that mends one family and helps to create a new one. Over the course of this book, it becomes clear that the story is primarily about different kinds of love--between Suzy and her mother, Suzy and Carl, and between Suzy's mother and Mr. Barrett. Pettersen's choice to tell the story through Suzy's eyes makes it charming from start to finish.

The budding romance between Suzy's mother and Mr. Barrett is understated, and Suzy's kindness to Carl is presented as a young girl doing her best to be good. Pettersen supplies hints of tragic pasts for many of the characters, but they're softened when seen through Suzy's young eyes... 

A delightful book about kindness, family, Christmas miracles--and ponies." - KIRKUS REVIEWS

"A heartwarming story that brings together the wonderful innocence of children and the magic of the Christmas season." - Feathered Quill Book Reviews

"Told from a six-year-old's perspective, this story is a sweet short story about love, family, kindness and the miracle of a child's belief. A Must read." - Amazon Reviewer

"I loved A Pony for Christmas by Bev Pettersen. It is a very very nice story that will teach you to be strong if you have been bullied, and that good friends like Carl will always be around. It will also teach you that sharing what you have with others will make you feel so happy to see how happy they will feel with your gift no matter how big or small. The best part is that Suzy got her pony. I just loved this story." Paola Belloso (age 7) for Reader Views

"A big hearted little girl, the right secondary characters, and a big wish for Christmas. Made me cry and then feel good all over!" - Amazon Reviewer

"A Pony For Christmas by Bev Petteren was a good book because I read it in one day! And I'm only 9 years old. I am kind of like Suzy because I want a pony. My favorite character is Mr. Barrett. I like him because I think it was nice that he gave Suzy a big candy cane for Christmas, and I think Suzy thought it was nice too. I recommend this book to anyone who loves ponies/horses or to anyone who loves warm hearted books." - Young Amazon Reviewer

"Such a sweet story and well written. Good for adults, good for children, good for adults to read to children. You think you know where the story is going, but there's a nice surprise." - Amazon Reviewer

"A Pony For Christmas is the perfect story to read on Christmas Eve! Bev Pettersen wrote a heartwarming story that will surely please any readers from 6 and older if you are young at heart. It's a beautiful short novella, that tells the story of Suzy who wished a pony for Christmas. Even if we know what will happen next, it's so sweet and charming you'll love to read it out loud during the festive season. Touching story of Suzy and Carl. Recommended for all ages." - Goodreads Reviewer

From the Author

Horses were my first love so it's no surprise a pony topped my wish list every Christmas. This story was written for all the children, and adults, who hoped and wished and prayed, just like me. May all your dreams come true!
