Puddleby the real-life pony!

Puddleby the real-life pony!

Puddleby is a sweet book by Thea Wilcox. It's an adorable story of a pony who finds his true calling. Much of the book is based on actual people and true events.

This is a wonderful book to give to a younger reader - I think about kindergarten through third or fourth grade.

Puddleby Pony is a real pony, and the story behind this book is very cool. The author, Thea, got Puddleby thinking she would train and sell him. But she realized he had a much more important mission. He became part of her mission to help bring up the spirits of people going through very difficult situations.

So 100% of the profits of the sales of Puddleby go to the Going Miles for Smiles Foundation (GMFS, a Florida, not-for-profit organization formed while author Thea Wilcox wrote her book, Puddleby. Thea's dream is to help many, many people in a unique way.......by bringing smiles to those who are less fortunate than others.

It may be a child fighting a severe illness who and is restricted to living in a hospital. Perhaps it is the disadvantaged child who has never felt the warm, moist nose of a pony against her skin. Or it might be an elderly person who has no other family, and needs a loving animal to brighten up an otherwise gloomy day.

Puddle’s mission – through the Going Miles for Smiles Foundation – is to bring happiness and special sunshine to those who need it the most.

Puddleby Makes You Smile
by: Pam

I was blessed to read this heartwarming, entertaining, funny book, when winter had gotten too long. It was the best day of winter. A good read that supports a good cause.

courage and compassion
by: Anonymous

a "must" read for elementary and middle school children. Puddleby demonstrates courage and compassion, the very same traits we admire in our
fellow human beings. The book will be a welcome addition to elementary and middle school libraries.

Traveling With The Kids? Try Puddleby on CD
by: Charlene

We listened to Puddleby on CD and also followed along reading the book as we drove on a trip to Florida. We thought it would be a great gift for our grandaughter,as she is horse crazy and she loved it. What a wonderful gift author Thea Wilcox has given to her young and old readers and especially for Miles for Smiles. We hope we hear more from this caring author.

Change info
by: Thea Wilcox

I would like to correct an error in this post by Horse Crazy Girls, based on incorrect information given by our staff... the "profits" from the book, Puddleby, are given to Going Miles For Smiles,Inc., and not the "PROCEEDS," as stated. Follow the many appearances we have lined up this summer and fall! Also, a new book, Brotherly Bliss, is coming this fall.
