You may know her as the clever creator of the “Hark! A Vagrant” webcomic series, but soon young readers will know Kate Beaton as the author behind the hilarious adventures of Princess Pinecone and her farting pony. As seen on our Summer Children’s Preview, Beaton’s debut picture book introduces readers to a viking princess who, for her birthday, wants nothing more than a mighty and powerful steed to ride into battle. What she gets instead is a very round, very adorable, and not very frightening pony.
Whether you’re a fan of Beaton’s comics, or if you know a young reader who would appreciate the fine humor of a flatulent horse, this book is not to be missed. Enter below for a chance to win a Princess and the Pony prize pack: a copy of The Princess and the Pony, a Kate Beaton-designed Pony t-shirt, and a “Small Fat and Mighty” mug.
