The Christmas Pony - Reviewed

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Book Blurb:

Eight-year-old Lucy Turnbull knew better than to wish for a pony that Christmas in 1937. Her mother had assured her in no uncertain terms that asking for a pony was the same as asking for the moon. Besides, the only extra mouths they needed at their boarding house were the paying kind. But when an interesting pair of strangers comes to town, Lucy starts to believe her Christmas wishes might just come true after all. 

My Thoughts:

Lucy has fallen in love, and not with a boy, with a pony. Smoky is a grey pony that is for sale and Lucy wants him in the worst way. Her mother has told her that asking for a pony for Christmas is pointless as they need mouths to feed, the paying kind. When Lucy runs into George and Veronica at the mechanic's shop she believes her prayers have been answered and Smoky is within reach.
I fell in love with Lucy. Her childlike heart is what we all long for especially at Christmas, dreaming and hoping for the impossible.
I highly recommend this book!
