It’s beach time for a playful pony and her friends in this lighthearted celebration of friendship and loyalty from the author of Noni the Pony, which The New York Times called “an unabashedly sweet and simple tale about a happy pony…related in laid-back couplets that work perfectly for young children.”
Noni the Pony is friendly and funny. She loves going down to the beach when it's sunny. With her two very best friends Dave Dog and Coco the Cat, and the cows from next door, it's going to be a wonderful day.
Noni the Pony and her friends are off to the beach! Their playful day is going swimmingly—until Dave Dog follows a whale a bit too far out to sea. Luckily, Noni is there to rescue the poor pup and bring him back to safety…and back to the fun!

About Alison Lester
Alison Lester grew up on a farm by the sea, and first rode a horse as a baby in her father's arms. Her picture books mix imaginary worlds with everyday life, encouraging children to believe in themselves and celebrate the differences that make them special. Alison is involved in many community art projects and spends part of every year travelling to remote Indigenous communities, using her books to help children and adults write and draw about their own lives.
In 2012, Alison became Australia's first Children's Book Laureate, a position she shared with Boori Monty Pryor. In 2016, she was awarded the Dromkeen Medal for her outstanding achievement in the creation of Australian children's and young adult literature, and in 2018 she became the first children's book writer to win the Melbourne Prize for Literature, for her outstanding contribution to Australian literature and cultural and intellectual life.
