Table of Contents
About The Book
Sweet Snow Pony is loved by all for her beautiful coat as white as snow and her mane as black as ebony. Children come to her farm from all over just to have her braid their hair and teach them line dancing.
But not everyone loves Snow Pony. Jealous Queenie hatches an evil plan to make Snow Pony run away from the stable by planting a trail of apples into the woods and before long Snow Pony is lost! Full of delicious apples but all alone in the woods, Snow Pony stumbles upon the home of seven miniature ponies. The mini-ponies couldn’t be cuter, especially with Snow Pony’s braids, but they don’t have quite the same moves as the kids back on the farm.
Will her new friends help her find her way home? Or will the evil Queenie get her way?

Raves and Reviews
"An equine retelling of a classic fairy tale, with many, many twists...wryly magical." — Kirkus Reviews
"This book will top the pile of bedtime favorites in horse-loving households, with jokes thrown in for the grown-ups, to boot." — Publisher's Weekly
"Snow White gets an equine makeover in this funny reimagining of the fairy-tale classic...Trimmer’s tongue-in-cheek story is fully aware of its ridiculous premise—not to mention the irresistible adorableness of miniature horses—but readers lured by these won’t be disappointed." — Booklist
"Accompanied by sparkling stars, Snow Pony cuts a graceful figure, while the endearingly eccentric, diminutive ponies are squat, with long manes covering their eyes. This version of the tale strikes a whimsical note, eschewing snark in favor of offbeat but kid-friendly humor." - School Library Journal, starred review
