Princess Pinecone is determined to be the toughest warrior in the kingdom — so she 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; instead, she gets a small, vacant eyed, and somewhat flatulent little pony. Although she's briefly dismayed, she's not deterred, and she shows up with her not-so-mighty steed for the big battle... only to discover that her unusual pony can be an unexpected asset in battle!
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.
"Chunky, colorful digital illustrations provide plenty of detail to keep readers entertained; older children will enjoy exploring all of the different posters marking Pinecone's walls, or some of the sillier warriors in the battle fray, including one sneakily eating a hot dog." — Ashleigh Williams, School Library Journal
