Meet Catherine Corey Keegan Dana (everyone calls her Keeker). What she wants most of all is a pony.

Meet Plum. Plum is a Shetland pony (who's known to be a teeny bit sneaky). She rarely, if ever, thinks about little girls. She certainly doesn't want one.

I read the first three books of this series aloud to my kids this morning. To normal people, this is a perfectly lovely series about a young girl and her first pony (I have no clue if the pony parts were accurately written but they seem believable).
To a fiction writer and editor..... ACK. Weird POV issues. Every few sentences the point of view changes from the little girl's thoughts to the pony's thoughts. They are both identified as female so everyone is a "her" and it was hard to keep track o
In this new short-chapter-book series, things aren’t as wonderful as Keeker hoped they would be when she receives the pet she’s always wanted. Shetland pony Plum doesn’t want a little girl. In fact, she thinks Keeker is nosy and annoying. Girl-and-horse stories are plentiful, but Plum is a refreshingly playful and ornery pony who makes this series stand apart. Girls will enjoy the brown pen-and-ink illustrations of the curly-locked, long-lashed, round-eyed characters.
I'm giving this book a 4 mostly because of how much my daughter enjoyed reading it. This series is very fun and simple. I first brought home books 4 and 7 from the library. I had just kind of thrown them in with a bunch of the other books and my daughter came out of the room that afternoon asking for the first 3 books in the series. Perfect for girls who are in love with horses!

RL 730. Great transitional reader for kids who are beyond henry and mudge but not yet ready for magic treehouse. Also going to be a great series for pony-loving girls. This first book was mostly setting up the story and there wasn't a whole lot of meat... but I think the series as a whole will have great appeal.

It is a great book for people who do not like to read. It is not long or hard but it is not lame or dumb. I always read it to my dog durring thunder storms. (she is sooo scared of thunder storms.) I love it and read on my spare time because it is a great book. (thats comming from me, i dont like to read.)
We're on a search for books that Laurel likes to read that are challenging enough but not too challenging. These are perfect, and they keep her interested. We've got the whole set and are working our way through them.
Keeker got a pony. Her dad got it for her. But the pony got naughty. But keeker scratched the pony's back for her and then they were friends. I like that store becus that store has pone facts .
it is very boring all it is about is this girl gets a pony and the pony runs away in the woods and the pony dosen't like the girl very much.
