For her fifth book in the Wicky Wacky Farm Series, author Doreen Slinkard takes Peppi the Polo Pony and Wilby the Kangaroo to China!
Wicky Wacky Farm Stories: Peppi Goes to China is a delightful children's story showing how everyone has the need to succeed, though sometimes the ego raises its ugly head. This timely tale tells how two good friends deal with the situation.
Peppi and Wilby have been the greatest of friends since the night they met. Peppi was all alone and not doing well at anything he tried, until Wilby introduced himself and taught the pony all the tricks and rules of the game of polo.
Under Wilby's guidance, Peppi becomes a champion polo pony, with his friend always at his side. When Peppi was loaned to the Prince of Horsenland to play polo in China, the pony became ill. Lonesome for his best mate, the prince flies Wilby to China in a passenger airplane, first class!
En route, Wilby becomes enthralled watching "The Karate Kid" movie and decides to have a go at becoming a karate champion. Peppi is put out by this, thinking that Wilby should support him instead of pursuing his own glory as a champion. See what happens when two friends learn the true meaning of supporting each other.
Doreen Slinkard lives at Windermere Farm Wilberforce, outside Sydney, Australia, where she is a horse trainer. Her grandchildren inspire her to write the Wicky Wacky Farm Series.
