Staff Reviews

The Princess and the Pony by Kate Beaton. Kate Beaton is much loved for her comedic take on history through the webcomic Hark! A Vagrant., and she brings the same irreverent adorableness to her first picture book. Princess Pinecone is a tiny girl in a land of large warriors, and when she asks for a warhorse for her birthday, well meaning parents get her...a pony. A fat little pony. A cuddly pony that Princess Pinecone will do her best to turn into a horse worthy of helping her win a Great Battle.
Sometimes great warriors need cuddling too.   

— From Carlin's Picks


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 is a laugh-out-loud story of brave warriors, big surprises, and falling in love with one unforgettable little pony.
