Pony by R. J. Palacio

March 1, 2023 (by Kerri)


Pony by R.J. Palacio is nothing short of lovely. A nostalgic coming-of-age tale of a 19th century boy who sets out on a mysterious pony to rescue his kidnapped father from a band of counterfeiters, this middle grade / YA novel is filled with adventure, courage, and the powers of friendship and love. I highly recommend this as one of those unique stories that appeals to adults and kids alike. I read this new classic to myself, but it would be the perfect family read-aloud!
