Kizzy has always wanted a pony of her own. So when she finds a pony snacking on donuts in the grocery store, she instantly knows that she must have him — and what to name him. But there’s just one small problem: it’s not easy to hide a pony in an apartment complex!
Enlisting the help of her best friend, Pawel, Kizzy manages to keep Donut fed, ride him around the park, and even hide him in her school’s garden. But Kizzy is finding it harder and harder to keep Donut a secret. Will she be able to give him up if it means finding him a better home? This charming story, sprinkled with hilarious and expressive illustrations, is a heartwarming story about following your dreams — no matter how far-fetched they seem.
"Getting her new pony in and out of the building daily, finding the money to buy food for the constant eater, cleaning up his poop, and keeping him out of trouble all challenge her ambition to keep him. With a little help from some old and new friends, Kizzy keeps the pony longer than she logically should, but when she finally finds its rightful owner, it’s not the devastating farewell she had feared.... Faber writes in a way that respects young readers’ intelligence, making this a chapter-book/middle-grade hybrid ideal for young, advanced readers." — Kirkus Reviews
