About the Author
Alison Lester grew up on a farm by the sea, and first rode a horse as a baby in her father's arms. Her picture books mix imaginary worlds with everyday life, encouraging children to believe in themselves and celebrate the differences that make them special. Alison is involved in many community art projects and spends part of every year travelling to remote indigenous communities, using her books to help children and adults write and draw about their own lives. In 2012, Alison Lester became Australia's first Children's Book Laureate, a position shared with Boori Monty Pryor.
"In [Alison Lester's]..."Noni the Pony," an unabashedly sweet and simple tale about a happy pony, her affection and easy familiarity with these four-legged favorites shine through... the target audience will appreciate its simple cadences, which allow them to predict the rhyming words and to participate in the pleasures of the story.... Lester's cheerful illustrations nicely match the text, yet offer welcome surprises. There's something amusing about Noni's oversimplified movements, from her squirrel-like leap on the cover to her curled-up-like-a-kitty finale."
