Based on the title and cover, The Princess and the Pony initially got a lukewarm to mixed reception in my house. The 6-year-old girl looked optimistic (though she’s not a “princess girl”), and the 4-year-old boy eyed it with extreme skepticism.
It only took a couple pages, though, to find them both roaring with laughter and repeating the lines after me (between giggles, of course).
