CBCA Awards Nominations, 2015 – Noni the pony goes to the beach by Alison Lester


Noni the pony is back and so is Alison Lester, one of Australia’s favourites. This is a simple read, probably best at night time before a little one goes to bed. Alison Lester quite often takes stories from her own childhood and expands a little. This one is no exception to that rule. Alison spent her early days riding horses with her father.

When I say simple read, I do not mean that in a derogatory sense. On the contrary, we probably need to balance out the more hard hitting, complex books with some light, happy stuff. It is also a fun read. As Aussies, we are very fond of the beach and our animals. This is a day in the life of one of our favourite characters.
