    I found this book when I was small and honestly don't know how many times I read it. The book progresses nicely and is perfect for anyone seeking a little escapism.

    This was my favorite book during my childhood. It was my fondest escape to go away with the mysterious horses.

    It was my favorite booke when I was 9. I am almost afraid to re-read it.

    My favorite book as a child. I recently bought it for my daughter who is not big on reading and she loved it!

    Read this book as a kid/teen and remember the beautiful imagery of the ponies and also the just-creepy-enough subplot of fear and darkness. A good book to read during the day, or when you know your parents are in the house with you!

    Undercooked.Once the story is well under way Snyder develops some interesting parallels between Pamela's fantasy and reality, but it feels rushed.

    This was a reread of an old favorite, a delightful, enchanting, magical story.

    Pamela lives a rather dreary life at Oak Tree Farm - there aren't any horses, and she's homeschooled, and her father has just gone back on his promise to take her with him, leaving her with her two stiff aunts for the whole summer. Her father does give her a medallion, and then that Pamela sees the ponies. Led by a free-spirited boy she calls Ponyboy, Pamela embarks on a fairy tale summer complete with stories and circus games and even a swamp witch. I first discovered Zilpha Keatley Snyder in t [...]

    So I recently decided - as one does? - that I want to read all of Zilpha Keatley Snyder's books, in order, so I am starting at the beginning here. This book is entirely driven by magical ponies. There's no other reason to read it. *grin* There's some minorly sexist dialogue, but mostly those parts just made me roll my eyes.

    Season of Ponies isn't so much interesting as a book on its own as it is an indicator of Snyder's later work. So many of her persistent themes are already apparent: a young protagonist, trapped in a lonely old house with a curt authority figure and distant or absent parents; a direct use of imagination and imaginative play to help the protagonist grow; the mysterious play-partner; and, finally, a question of "What is real?" There are direct correlations to be made with The Egypt Game (one chapte [...]

    Pamela, a lonely little girl, lives in an isolated house with her two aunts (one nice, one distant and strict). Her absentee father visits occasionally, and her mom is dead. But her life gets a lot more fun when she gets a magic amulet that enables her to meet a mysterious boy her own age and his herd of pastel ponies. Obviously, the best part of this book is the pastel ponies. Who wouldn't want a herd of pink, blue, sunset, and sunrise-colored ponies named after clouds? I wish I'd read this boo [...]

    I was given this book at some point in my early teen years, read and loved it, and then it disappeared. And I never could seem to find it again, or find it listed anywhere - which seemed to go with the storyline very well. Now I have finally rediscovered it and am wondering if I want to reread or if that would spoil this spell of mystery that hangs over its memory. :)

    This was my absolute favorite book in third grade — I went to my elementary school library a few years ago and the tag in the book showed me checking it out about eight times in a row -- and upon rereading, I can see why. It has ponies, freedom from adults, creepiness, magicl the right ingredients, and in just the right proportions.

    I adored this book and read it over and over when I was 10. Then I outgrew horses as many adolescent girls do, but I was haunted by the imagery from this story. I'd confused the title by then and it took me YEARS to rediscover it. I was thrilled when I was able to buy a copy for my own library shelves.

    Another wonderful book by Zilpha Keatley Snyder. Her fantasy is grounded in reality and feels believable. I loved these books as a child and I'm enjoying them again as an adult. This one felt like it happened in the hills here in Sonoma County. It is nice to see growth in the adults as well as the central child character.

    Child me would have adored this sweet, magical book. I would have read it until the pages fell out, were taped back in, and fell out yet again.If you liked this book, you might also enjoy:✱ A Dog Called Homeless

    This was one of my favorite books as a child and every time I re-read it, I understand why.

    I loved this book when I was 10-14 years old and then read it again when I was 30. Still loved it.

    A bit weird. Don't really enjoy the metaphysical mystical pony stories as much as proper pony books but well written

    One of my favorites as a child.

    A girl is left by her Father to live with her Aunts & it changes her life.

    Lovely, magical, daintily written tale about loneliness and hope. I adore this book.

    One of my all-time faves!

    Early Fantasy involving the Fae. Interesting! I wonder if theis is where I got my love of the Fae?!

    Beautiful story!
