The Princess and the Pony: 06/18/17

The Princess and the Pony  by Kate Beaton

The Princess and the Pony by Kate Beaton is inspired by her "Shetland Pony" comics in the Hark a Vagrant books but it's aimed at a younger audience.

Princess Pinecone wants nothing more than a war horse for her birthday. Every year she's gotten an cute sweater. She hopes this year will be different.

Her parents are the king and queen and proud warriors. Pinecone wants to be one too. When she gets a horse, though, it's not what she expected. He's small, fat, and wall-eyed. He's the horse equivalent of my Tortuga cat.

Pinecone and her pony are a ridiculous pair. She's not what she expected but she's not spoiled or heartless. She does come to love him on his own terms. She also gets to find a use for her hoard of ugly sweaters.

Five stars
