The Princess and the Pony by Kate Beaton review – strength is a farting horse
It was a safe bet that Kate " Hark! A Vagrant! Beaton's first kids' picture book would be amazing, but The Princess and the Pony is incredible. Princess Pinecone is a the smallest warrior in a kingdom of warriors, and she lives for battle. But every year on her birthday, her parents give her a cuddly sweater. What she really wants is a mighty charger, from whose back she might smite other warriors.
Strong means strong: Black Widow, Ripley, Furiosa, the final girl whopping Jason with his own scythe. As Kate Beaton memorably illustrated in a series of her online cartoons , Hark! For freedom. For feminism! When she gets it, she too, like Sarah Connor, will murder her way through shoals of villains, laughing as she bathes in gouts of blood. Or possibly not so much.
