Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun! This book was lots of fun to read and it breaks the traditional role of princesses and what they can/can't do. The illustrations were wonderful as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A princess and farts in the same story- perfect! THANK YOU Kate Beaton for writing something awesome for little girls (and their parents). This one is a winner on so many levels! The fluff is right where it belongs, which is no where near the young lady's character. If you are tired of loser books for girls, or just like a good laugh, buy this one today! I love when my kids pick this one to read:-) Give it as a gift, buy it for yourself, it's awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable! This was a really cute book about a girl who has to learn to live with a disappointing gift. Feminist! non-violent! Sweaters! And that Pony sure is fat.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Princess and the Pony:"A highly recommended, charmingly illustrated tale of teamwork and tenderness." -School Library Journal, starred review"Beaton blurs the boundaries of traditional storytelling, marrying fantasy elements to pop culture with a free-associative swagger." -Kirkus, starred review"The perfect combination of heartwarming and hilarious." -Booklist starred review"It's a smart, brisk story that tosses aside conventional ideas of what princesses (and ponies) are "supposed" to be." -Publishers Weekly starred review"Beaton Strays form the predictable underdog (underpony?) route, combining an original narrative with clever gags to make a truly one of a kind princess story." - National Post
