From the award-winning author of The Princess and the Foal and The Island of Lost Horses comes a heart-warming new novel about the unbreakable bond between a young girl and her beloved animals.

Inspired by real-life events from the devastating November 2016 earthquake in Kaikoura, The Thunderbolt Pony tells the story of one girl’s determination to stand by her animals – and her refusal to give up, even in the face of impossible odds. Ages 9+

About the author:

Stacy Gregg understands the desperation of wannabe horsey girls who want a pony of their own. She spent many frustrating horse-less years training her bewildered dog to show jump in the back yard until her parents gave in and she got her first pony – a sway-backed brown mare named Bonnie. She currently rides a rather uppity, difficult chestnut gelding called Jasper and dreams of owning a posh Andalusian stallion.

A former high-profile fashion editor (she was a judge on the New Zealand version of TV’s Next Top Model and editor-at-large of Fashion Quarterly Magazine), Gregg has no regrets about trading her Christian Louboutins for life in gumboots. She lives in Auckland with her partner Michael, their nine-year-old daughter and assorted animals.
