Dear Pony Pals

There are so many things going on with our new game that I don't know where to begin.

This week we got a new logo made up. It shows Pam, Lulu and Anna running and it's really cute.

I went for a short ride this week in our new game, it is really exciting! You can ride around and see our barn now, and even try riding through trees. Testers will get a chance to try it next, if you haven't signed up to be a tester yet just send in an email saying "I want to be a tester" and we'll add you to the list.

Please tell your friends and reading teachers about Club Pony Pals. Help us make a free pony available for everyone who wants one. We can only do that if we get lots of new members!

Letters for Jeanne Betancourt

Dear Jeanne,
I love ponies so much! I ride but i don't have a pony of my own.
Are Pam, Anna and Lulu real girls?

Also could you please tell me a book review on the last pony pals book?

Yours sincerely Laura, 9 years old.

Dear Laura and Club Pony Pals,

I have been having a wonderful time (this summer) doing plein aire watercolors. It was so interesting to see the artist's letter and rendering of the clinic!

I cried a little myself when I wrote THE LAST PONY RIDE. In my imagination I had lived in Wiggins with Pam, Anna, and Lulu and their wonderful ponies for ten years. It felt like I was saying goodbye to good friends.

I am very excited about the game … when every Pony Pal can have a pony and write with Pam, Anna, and Lulu.

Hoping all is well with you,

The WebMaster adds:

Jeanne Betancourt was living in Sharon, CT when she wrote the Pony Pal series of books. Jeanne writes that she based Wiggins on that town, with a dash of the small town she lived in when she grew up. I lived in a small town in Michigan during the 70’s and I recall my experiences there. I now live on a ranch near a small California town and some of the events in the newsletter are built on what I see around me here.

If there is a Wiggins, I would want to live there. It is uncrowded, has four seasons, three little girls ride ponies along roads and through backyards, pretty much everybody is friends with everybody else. (Except of course for Mike Lacey and Tommy Rand, who have

When the game launches next month, you will get to visit Wiggins and see all the places in Jeanne's books, a few at a time as they are created.

I hope you'll stop by and visit.

We want your drawings or letters!
