for Jeanne Betancourt
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
Yours sincerely Laura, 9 years old.
Dear Laura and Club
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

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

Jeanne Betancourt was living
in Sharon, CT when she wrote the Pony Pal series of books. Jeanne

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.
