Description

Iain Lawrence's New York Times bestsellers are often singled out for recognition from numerous publications and organizations, including the ALA, School Library Journal, and Booklist. In The Winter Pony, Lawrence pens the mesmerizing tale of a young white Siberian pony who escapes a group of cruel masters only to enter the company of Englishman Robert Falcon Scott. Joining Scott's men and their race to the South Pole, the pony is soon given a name, James Pigg, as he and the rest embark on a thrilling race to reach the bottom of the world-a race in which not everyone will survive.

Professional reviews

"If you ever wanted a pony as a kid, you'll love Ballerini's plucky and warmly personable "James Pigg," the Russian pony of the title. Ballerini will break your heart with his brave, bewildered rendering of the quest for the South Pole. This stunning vision of Robert Falcon Scott's failed attempt to win the Age of Exploration's last big prize in 1911-12 is ineffably sad but beautifully researched and written. Prebble fills in many blanks as the no-nonsense narrator. The titular pony has no way to understand that Scott chose ponies and motorized sledges for his race, while Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen chose sled dogs. Scott lost, and you may not be sorry that he did. James Pigg's struggles make Black Beauty's seem easy. This historical creative nonfiction is recommended for young adults (and adults). M.M.C.
