A fun furry farm-cat called Taffy and a nice roan horse named Pearly try to help. It even looks like Princess Lil might have a chance to cheer up special-needs children, too, but she is already too hurt and too sick.
Princess Lil is about the differences between loyal friends and those who bully others. It shows the power of caring about ourselves and the people who look out for us.
Is it too late for a sad pony in a scary place? The answer might just depend on how much we all love Princess Lil.

Okay, so I don't usually review books written for children. I hadn't even read a children's book since my own kids were little ones. But this book, Princess Lil by Nelle Cooper, is definitely worth a review and some well-deserved publicity. This is the story of a pony that gets left behind after her human companion, a young girl, forgets about the pony while pursuing a boy who doesn't have her best interests at heart. This pony is then sold to another farm, where she encounters bullying in its worst form. This book isn't meant to simply entertain the kiddies; there are lessons here, strong lessons, on how we ought to treat those who may be different or new to a situation. Princess Lil is a teaching tool meant to reach children before it's too late, before bad manners and bad habits bury their roots too deep to pluck up. This is a well-written tale that confronts the issue of bullying, paving the way for honest discussion with young children on this all-to-common subject. The book, illustrated with photos, is geared primarily toward girls aged 6-10, but young boys could learn from this story as well. if you have youngsters in your lives, I highly recommend this work.
