Summary:  Snow Pony is a beautiful snow white pony who loves and is loved by (almost) all the humans and animals on the farm.  Queenie (another pony) is jealous of Snow Pony, and creates a trail of apples to lead her away from her home. Snow Pony gets lost and ends up in a barn with seven miniature ponies, who invite her to live with them.  She grows to love them, but misses her old friends. One day, her favorite human tracks her down and convinces her to come back home. She brings the miniature ponies along with her, and they all live happily ever after…even Queenie.  48 pages; ages 4-8.

Pros:  A fun retelling of Snow White with cute illustrations and a sly humor adults will appreciate at least as much as kids.

Cons:  I recoiled in horror at the sight of what I thought was Queenie’s fate, but turned the page and was reassured by the final illustration.
