I received this book courtesy of Ms. Virant for the purpose of fair and honest review.
Overview: We start by meeting Rita Bonita, a young pony who gets picked on by the rest of the herd. Let’s see what happens when she comes across T-Bone’s Traveling Circus.
Story Telling: This children’s book didn’t really beat you over the head with the chosen theme. The illustrations are more cartoon-like than realistic, but that’s part of the charm.
Likes: Rita was kind of cute. And the young girl who was friends with T-Bone, showed what kind of friend she was. She continued T-Bone’s legacy.
Favorite Character: It’s a tie between T-Bone, Rita, and Lenny. Lenny is definitely the kind of lion that you would be even more cautious of, or a good friend. I’m not sure which yet, if ever.
Favorite Quote: This one comes courtesy of Scorch. “We’re a band of misfits–always the butt of a joke.”
Favorite Scene: The best part was when T-Bone came by to see the circus.
Conclusion: This was such a cute, and uplifting story. Enjoy it with your child. It’s good enough to have made my library. I hope it makes yours.
