The Painted Ponies

  • Sold Out

A little girl whose family runs a travelling show falls in love with some wild ponies...but what will she do when she realises they long to be set free?

Matilda loves staying at Grandma Lucky's, riding Luna in the front paddock and playing with the painted ponies in their carved wooden wagon.

The gold palomino, the chestnut, the bay,
the pinto, the brown and the dappley grey.

One day, Lucky tells Matilda about when she was a little girl and the real ponies were her friends...

A big, beautiful story about friendship and freedom, from Australia's favourite picture book creator, Alison Lester.
