This new children’s classic will steal your heart. Peppi the Polo Pony was born at Wicky Wacky Farm, bred to  be a racehorse. He was considered an ugly duckling, but the children didn’t care what Peppi looked like, they all just loved him for himself.

Since Peppi wasn’t up to racing, the children’s dad, Wally, was ready to sell him to a mean, grumpy man. But then Aunty Jane saved the day! She lived next door on her own horse farm and suggested that  Peppi  might  make a  polo pony. The children were  delighted  with  that,  as  they  would  be  able  to  visit  him.

The polo horses at Aunty Jane and Uncle Mark’s were all so very beautiful that they looked down on Peppi. Aunty Jane took Peppi to try out for the polo team and he played as hard as he could, but wasn’t succeeding. Then Wilby, their pet kangaroo, met Peppi and began to teach the pony everything he could about polo.

One day a prince came to play polo at the Royal Show and wanted a horse from Uncle Mark’s  team,  as he knew they  had  some  of  the  best  horses  in  the  land.

Surprisingly, the prince chose Peppi! In the last seconds of the game, with the score tied, read how Peppi became a hero. Now all the other horses respect the polo pony with heart.

Reviews for Peppi the Polo Pony

    I was looking for a gift for my granddaughter when a friend who's involved with horses recommended Peppi. What a superb book; my granddaughter loves the story and always wants to read it with me. Fun and lighthearted, with a strong moral code, these stories are beautifully illustrated and lovely to look at. I would definitely recommend this book!

    There’s a 3 year old who wants to have Peppi’s story read every night.  We are in month two of reading Peppi story every night again and again, the youngster never tires of this positive story. I too love this positive story, I started out in life a lot like Peppi, differance is I'm dyslexic.  Stories like this support the development of young minds to have positive expectations and values.  My deep and profound gratitude to it’s author Doreen Slinkard
