Kizzy has always wanted a pony of her own. So when she finds a pony snacking on donuts in the grocery store, she instantly knows that she must have him — and what to name him. But there’s just one small problem: it’s not easy to hide a pony in an apartment complex! Enlisting the help of her best friend, Pawel, Kizzy manages to keep Donut fed, ride him around the park, and even hide him in her school’s garden. But Kizzy is finding it harder and harder to keep Donut a secret. Will she be able to give him up if it means finding him a better home? A heartwarming story about following your dreams — no matter how far-fetched they seem.
Kizzy would give anything for a pony, but she never expected to find one at the supermarket! How do you keep a pony in your apartment without anyone finding out?
