CHRISTMAS PONY by William Hall


Email this review


Chris was a Christmas gift pony, and T.G. the turkey and Easter the rabbit were his friends. He didn't want to leave them behind when Santa Claus called him to be a present for a lucky little boy. Santa had no room in the sleigh, so the trick rabbit and the turkey took off on an unusual flight, and in the midst of the trimmings and doings of Christmas, they put on their bag of tricks and persuaded an indulgent father that the three friends belonged together. Sleighs and reindeer on the cover and Christmas in the title will go far toward offsetting the color scheme which somehow doesn't seem quite right for Christmas. Large format- with too much text for the picture book age. A bit slow.
