It's beach time for a playful pony and her friends in this lighthearted celebration of friendship and loyalty from the author of Noni the Pony, which The New York Times called "an unabashedly sweet and simple tale about a happy pony...related in laid-back couplets that work perfectly for young children."
Noni the Pony and her friends are off to the beach! Their playful day is going swimmingly--until Dave Dog follows a whale a bit too far out to sea. Luckily, Noni is there to rescue the poor pup and bring him back to safety...and back to the fun!
