Princess and the Pony

Summary: Princess Pinecone would like a real war horse for her birthday, instead of which she gets a plump, cute pony–but sometimes cuteness can be a kind of weapon, especially in a fight with dodgeballs and spitballs and hairballs and squareballs.

Rating: 3 ***

Beaton does a fun job playing with gender roles and expectations.
