So very apt

While organizing our series books, I came across this series and the title was so amusing to me that I had to post it here:Yes, that's right. The PONY-CRAZED PRINCESS. Series. I don't know what I like the most about it. The use of the word "crazed" in a children's book series title? Or the cartoon pony with a photo of a real horse hanging up in its stable?

Oh my goodness! Now I finally know what to give those girls that love horses AND princesses.

Yup. Pony-Crazed Princess.

And as of today our library is the proud collector of a series called Mermaid S.O.S.

The fun never stops.

my six-year-old was obsessed with that series. (someone gave her a copy. i swear i don't know how it got in our house.) i wrote about it here: http://www.forward.com/articles/14738/

the relevant line: "If publishers ever release 'Magical Princess Ponies and their Fairy Unicorn Friends and Zac Efron and OMG that Twilight Guy,' we are doomed."

I started buying this particular series with book #1, and they are never in. The combination of horses and princess really is too much for some girls (and boys--I know of at least one devoted boy Pony-Crazed Princesses reader at my library) to resist.

We have these, too. Every time I pass them I either crack up or think about marketers and shudder. (They're strangely not as popular here as I would expect them to be. Sometimes kids are pretty savvy.)
