Editorial Reviews

Bob Withers
The Almost Christmas Pony By Ruth Lynn Kirk of Charleston, is a beautiful story that the whole family will love; that pays tribute to a real-life pony that almost wasn't adopted into a loving family at Christmastime.

This is a happy story with a happy ending! The book retells the story of Charlie's adoption and how he won a permanent place with the family. Kirk's text is accompanied by charming, quaint illustrations by Lynn Degen, of Arcadia Studios in Chloe, that really captured the essence of Charlie.
