The Almost Christmas Pony cover

by Ruth Lynn Kirk
illustrated by Lynn Degen

The "Almost" Christmas Pony is based on a true story.  This book is a keeper. Children love it and, read it over and over. "Charlie" is a pony who has been abandoned in an animal shelter. He desperately wants a home for Christmas with a loving family. He sees other animals being adopted, dogs & cats, and wonders if anyone will come for him. Meanwhile, his nemesis, Paleface, a Shetland pony wants a home too. Will Charlie get adopted? Beautiful color illustrations based on actual animal photos. It appeals to ALL AGES, but especially to K-11 YEARS.

Reviews
The Herald Dispatch - Bob Withers

"The Almost Christmas Pony By Ruth Lynn Kirk of Charleston, is a beautiful story that the whole family will love; that pays tribute to a real-life pony that almost wasn't adopted into a loving family at Christmastime."

Sunday Gazette-Mail - Marina Hendricks

"This is a happy story with a happy ending! The book retells the story of Charlie's adoption and how he won a permanent place with the family. Kirk's text is accompanied by charming, quaint illustrations by Lynn Degen, of Arcadia Studios in Chloe, that really captured the essence of Charlie."
