A picture book that comes in chapters for readers just learning about paragraphs and plot lines, this book is written by Corinne Demas and illustrated by Jacqueline Rogers.
A girl named Jamie narrates the story of how she wanted a pony and heard about someone giving one away for free. She visits the pony, named McIntosh, and they grow to like each other very much. The owner of the pony, Gwen, is concerned that another girl named Cynthia (the daughter of her father's friend) might get the pony instead. Jamie and Gwen run into trouble when Cynthia and her father do come for McIntosh, but it is ultimately the pony's decision on whom he stays with.
