Meet Catherine Corey Keegan Dana (everyone calls her Keeker). What she wants most of all is a pony.

Meet Plum. Plum is a Shetland pony (who's known to be a teeny bit sneaky). She rarely, if ever, thinks about little girls. She certainly doesn't want one.

And when Plum and Keeker find themselves lost in the woods, they learn that working together is the best way to get out of a fix. This fast-paced story of adventure and friendship will have new readers galloping back for more.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Launching the Sneaky Pony series, newcomer Higginson's breezy if rather slight tale introduces Catherine Corey Keeker Dana, who lives in the country with her parents and a passel of pets. But what Keeker most wants is a pony, "someone to go around with and tell things to." Just when the eight-year-old is sitting around "feeling sad" and fearing she "would never, ever get her own pony," a truck with a horse trailer pulls up and delivers one. At the sight of Plum, Keefer says, "I love her already," while the confused animal wonders, "Whose girl is this?" The pony continues to get the best lines. When a frustrated Keeker calls Plum "sneaky" because the pony refuses to let her catch up to him, the animal says, "What a silly girl.... All she had to do was ask nicely." On their first outing, Plum, tempted by the scent of food, thinks, "I might need to lose this girl so I can really enjoy these woods." Plum takes off, but the two come to an understanding (Plum comments, "I'm glad I got a girl....With a little more training, she'll be just right"). Sepia-toned art and type give this tale a pleasingly old-fashioned yet timeless feel. The ample full-page and spot illustrations plus short sentences tailor this early chapter book to reluctant readers particularly those with a soft spot for horses (two more are planned for the fall). Ages 5-8. (May) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    What a fantastic series

    This series is such a great illustration of how kids have a tendancy to treat their friends at first--like "pets" almost--and what happens when the "pet" has other ideas of how the relationship is going to go. When Keeker first gets Plum, she thinks that she'll show her new pony how things ought to be, but Plum has other ideas. Plum soon finds out that owning a little girl can be a lot of work, too, though, and here's where the real friendship begins. The battle of wills soon turns into a lesson on respecting another's boundaries, and from that respect, the two become real friends. Every other book in the series is completely delightful, and so funny and engaging that you won't mind reading it several times with your kids, boys AND girls...nothing cracks up my son like Plum.
