Title: My Pony
Author: Susan Jeffers
A child creates her dream pony by drawing it on paper and imagining the adventures they would go on.
My Pony Written and illustrated by Susan Jeffers I want a pony. I want a pony more than anything in the world. At the heart of Susan Jeffers’s exquisite picture book lies the idea that in her imagination, a child can journey anywhere and do anything-even fly through the stars on her very own pony. Susan Jeffers, an avid equestrian and horse owner, effortlessly captures the grace and magic of horses in this luminous children’s picture book. My Pony is a landmark book in Ms. Jeffers’s career, for not only is it the first book she’s both written and illustrated, but it is also inspired by her own experiences as a young girl who wished for a pony and channeled that desire onto paper. Ms.Jeffers is a New York Times best-selling artist. She was a Caldecott Honor recipient for Three Jovial Huntsmen, she illustrated Love Songs of the Little Bear by Margaret Wise Brown, and continues to illustrate the best-selling McDuff series by Rosemary Wells
