Ponyella- Laura Numeroff and Nate Evans (Illustrator) Lynn Munsinger

A fun twist on the classic Cinderella fairy tale

When Ponyella’s ranch is sold, the new owners bring in two new ponies, Plumpkin and Bun Bun. They are very mean to Ponyella, making fun of her white coat and flowing mane. Then when Princess Penelope shows up looking for a champion pony at the Tippington 25th Annual Pony Championship, Plumpkin and Bun Bun tell Ponyella she is too dirty to go and she is left behind.

In this fantastic re-telling of the Cinderella fairy tale, Ponyella’s fairy godmare shows up, turning an apple core into a horse trailer, a mouse into a driver, and Ponyella into a magnificent pony complete with diamond horseshoes, Ponyella soon makes her way to the Pony Championship. Once there, Plumpkin and Bun Bun don’t recognize Ponyella and Penelope is amazed at how beautiful Ponyella’s looks and how high she jumps. But when the clock strikes noon the magic runs out and Ponyella will have to rush home…losing her diamond horseshoe possibly her chance happily ever after.

A fun twist on the classic Cinderella fairy tale, Ponyella is filled with beautiful illustrations, ponies, and a little magic. A perfect read for all the little girls who ever wanted a pony of their own.

Recommended for readers age 1 and up. Ponyella is available in hardcover at major retailers, but is available exclusively in paperback in selectScholastic bookfairs.
