KIRKUS REVIEW

The text indicates that the author felt the restrictions of writing in a limited vocabulary; the sentences are choppy and the dialogue babyish. Snowball, a Shetland pony, was sold to a circus when he was two years old; the pony easily adapts to circus life and becomes a top notch ring performer. Under photographs of Snowball and other circus performers in action are the pony's thoughts about his new way of life in quotations. Pictures of the pony have appeal, but generally, the black and white photographs are unexceptional, as is the text.
