The Princess and the Pony

By Kate Beaton

The teeny tiniest of adorable farting ponies gives the biggest of laughs in this riotously inventive new title from Kate Beaton, the artist behind the bestselling Hark! A Vagrant.

Fall in love with a teeny-tiny, roly-poly, cutie pie of a farting pony in this wickedly funny tale from Kate Beaton, the artist behind the comic phenomenon Hark! A Vagrant. Princess Pinecone knows exactly what she wants for her birthday this year. Not a cosy sweater like always, but a horse: a big horse, a strong horse, a horse fit for a Warrior Princess! But when the day arrives, Pinecone doesn't quite get the horse of her dreams... Brave Viking warriors and big surprises abound in this laugh-out-loud title.

  • With deadpan humour and a delicious turn of the page, Kate Beaton's warmhearted tale of an adorably flatulent, unforgettable pony is sure to make both children and adults roar with laughter.
  • A title endorsed by the inimitable Jon Klassen, creator of the HAT books: "I don't know how you make such a pretty book that has heart and wisdom and also a farting pony, but Kate Beaton does, and we are lucky that she does."
