I really enjoyed this cute little novel. It is set on a unique island where the children have to take a lobster boat to school and the high school students have to go to the mainland for school. The characters are friendly locals who set the stage for an engaging story focussed on the main character, seven-year-old Piper Green. In this installment of the series, Piper receives a whistle from the Fairy Tree in her front yard which gives her “things that you need not things that you want”. Piper ends up spending the day helping out her dad on his lobster boat when her uncle and her brother are both feeling under the weather. The whistle comes in very handy on her high sea adventure.
The Sea Pony is the third book in the series, and I want to rush out and buy the first two. The story is very fast-paced, and both my seven-year-old and my eight-year-old daughters enjoyed it. Even my 12-year-old could enjoy this little story. It has a lot of whimsy and a little bit of magic. Or is the neighbour lady the one who hides surprises in the Fairy Tree? Either way, The Sea Pony is a well-told story of a delightful character which I highly recommend for little girls.
Janet Beauchamp, the mother of three girls and a high school teacher and teacher-librarian, lives in L’Amable, ON.
