Attention cowgirls and cowboys! There's a young lady who has saddled up her pony and is heading out for a ride through the Wild West and she wants you to come along! With a pink hat, bright purple shirt, and huge smile, the pony-tailed girl in this charming book meets all sorts of desert animals on her journey. Along with the reader, she is introduced to a prairie dog, an armadillo, a jackrabbit and even a smelly skunk! Using sweet little rhymes, the author keeps the reader following along: Way out West on my little pony, I find a coyote howling at me. Howdy, coyote. High note, coyote. See you later, coyote. Trot away. The plump little pony in this story is likely to capture as many hearts as any other character. With a big smile that matches that of his rider, a long, long tail, and a mane that could be described as a "bad hair day," any child would love to trot away with this fuzzy equine. Top his adorable good looks off with some absolutely priceless expressions (matched only by the silly, startled look of the prairie dog) and you have a winner. A sweet story, with sing-song rhymes and fabulous pictures, makes Way Out West on My Little Pony a great book for group reading time at school. But be cautioned, if you plan on using the book for bedtime reading, you may have trouble getting your little one to settle down. She'll be galloping away on her own pony! Quill says: A charming story to introduce young cowgirls and cowboys to the wonders of the Wild West.
