Ponyella by Laura Numeroff & Nate Evans

You know the story. Stepsisters mistreat pretty girl. Fairy godmother gets her to the ball. Pretty girl meets a handsome prince and loses a shoe. Prince finds girl and they live happily ever after. Now imagine the girl is a pony...

What I thought: Love it! Such a fun version of Cinderella that's sure to please both princess fans and horse aficionados. I love all the horsey details. The illustrations are lovely. I wouldn't expect anything less from Ms. Munsinger. My favorite is Ponyella and Princess Penelope.

Story Time Themes: Princesses, Horses, Cinderella
