Rafflecopter Giveaway for the #PonyTime Prize Pack is at the bottom of this post.

Princess Pinecone wants to be a warrior princess and she knows that won't happen if she keeps getting sweaters for her birthday. This year she wants something awesome. Something awesome like a big strong horse. That's why she is so disappointed when the horse of her dreams is actually a cross-eyed rolly polly pony who farts a lot. How can she ever be a warrior princess with such a terrible present.

I love this book. More importantly, I love this pony. Although there are some that may take issue with this little farting pinto, I found this quality endearing not to mention it is sure to be a hit with youngsters. Seriously, never underestimate a good fart joke. Adorable as a very round pony, there isn't anything I would change about this one, which makes me even more excited that I get to give away a copy. I also would really like a stuffed animal of Princess Pinecone and the pony, preferably with farting noises.
