Angels Club (Middle Grade Novel - Horses, Kids, Friendship, Bullying and Ethnic Diversity)

West Ridge Farm Publishing

Hola, Cuties! I’m Jacinda Gonzalez, almost twelve. Although I think I’m pretty nice, not to mention way cool and one of the most knowledgeable people in all things horse, I just can’t make any friends in my new school. The only things flying my way are totally rude insults. The horseback riding therapy farm where I volunteer becomes my perfect escape from mean bullies. And when Angel, a scrawny, muddy American Curly, shows up as rescue, no one but me can see her potential and lovableness, so I take her on as a project horse to get her ready for sale. But, the thing is, I don’t want them to sell her. She’d be so perfect for therapy. So perfect. Now, if only I could prove it.

Anyway, Angel’s sugar-candy personality inspires me to be sweet in spite of bad things happening to me. So, of course, I can’t resist the urge to make the world a whole lot brighter. Come on in and see how I do it!

Middle Grade, Children's book, ages 6-8, 10-12, and up. A clean, cute, touching story for any lover of horses. American Curly Horse. Girls, bullying, friendship, multi-ethnic, handi-capable, diverse kid's book, farm life, horse rescue.

The first volume of the dementedly funny 80’s nostalgia series, The Poniworld Chronicles, introduces us to MachoPoni. He’s a purple pony who tries to act tough, but has a heart of gold.
And his heart has a soft spot for a female pony named Dust. He’s loved her ever since they were children, though many would call him a fool for doing so. Because most ponies would call Dust cruel and manipulative. But the part of her that MachoPoni fell in love with, is a part deep inside that she doesn’t show to others.
So when Dust is kidnapped and taken to the land of undead ponies, MachoPoni has no choice but to rescue her.
If you grew up watching 80’s My Little Pony cartoons, you’ll love this irreverent, twisted take on ponies and 80’s pop culture. It’s fun to catch all the references to the 80’s, and specifically to the year 1983. Seriously, every book in the series takes place in that year, because in Poniworld, it’s always 1983.
These books are darkly humorous, twisted parodies that children shouldn’t be allowed to read. They’re for those of you who want to revisit your childhood, but from the perspective of the slightly-off adult you’ve become. They’re truly “children’s books for adults,” delivered with a twisted sense of humor.
But don’t worry. If you didn’t grow up in the 80’s, there’s plenty of fun to be had for you too. Prepare to learn why the 80’s were so gnarly!
