Careless and rushed in her attempt to juggle her time between preparing for a pony competition and a tap dance recital, busy fourth grader Meg allows her pony Lady Jane to become very sick
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Grade 3-5-- A fourth grader experiences the realities of pony ownership as she prepares for a horse show. Meg and her brother David care for and ride their ponies, Lady Jane and Blue. (Meg received hers in A Pony for Keeps Thomasson- Grant, 1991, a picture book for younger readers.) Here, she learns an unpleasant lesson when her oversight causes Lady Jane to suffer colic, but the pony quickly recovers. The seven chapters cover a range of real-life situations and include horsekeeping details. Meg's concerns with her pony's well-being bring both characters to life, although the shifting point of view from Meg to David lessens the story's impact. Readers unfamiliar with horses may not know the terms used, but all will cheer as the children take turns on Blue to win the Championship. Full-color photos illustrate the book.
