I want a pony./DIVDIV I want a pony more than anything in the world. A little girl who longs for a pony draws pictures of a dappled mare she names Silver, then rides her through a magical countryside in her dreams. At the heart of Susan Jeffers’s exquisite picture book lies the idea that in her imagination, a child can journey anywhere and do anything— even fly through the stars on her very own pony…
The illustrations in My Pony are beautiful and are sure to thrill any young (or old!) reader who loves horses. The story is a touching, almost bittersweet tale of dreams and reality. I love the young narrators powerful imagination.
Susan Jeffers effortlessly captures the grace and magic of horses in this luminous picture book. Ms. Jeffers is a New York Times best-selling artist, who received a Caldecott Honor for her work on Three Jovial Huntsmen. She is also the illustrator of Margaret Wise Brown’s Love Songs of the Little Bear, and the best-selling McDuff series by Rosemary Wells. Susan Jeffers also wrote and illustrated a new pony picture book, My Chincoteague Pony.
