Book

If Dauphin, a pampered Shetland pony, seems to lead the perfect life in the penthouse suite of the city’s posh riding stables, it’s because he does.

Dauphin leads a rich, comfortable life. But all that changes when his relationship with his owner takes a decided turn for the worse. He’s suddenly sent away to a farm in the middle of nowhere, which is filled with the most unusual animals. And where, against all odds, he discovers the true meaning of home and family.

Praise for Little Prince

Praise for Annie Wedekind's Wild Blue:

“Horse fans and animal lovers will embrace this book with unbridled enthusiasm. It deserves a place next to Marguerite Henry or even Jack London on young readers’ bookshelves.”—School Library Journal

Praise for Annie Wedekind’s A Horse of Her Own:

“Sensitive, sophisticated and lyrically written, Wedekind’s debut portrays the typical teen struggle for self-awareness in an anything-but-typical fashion. Possibly the most honest horse book since National Velvet, from an equestrian point-of-view, this offering’s riding scenes combine accuracy with seat-of-the-pants excitement. A champion.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
