She does come to realize that the seal is a wild animal and not an appropriate pet, but her wish comes true in a more appropriate way. Cheerful line drawings add appeal. Completely satisfying. We wish for more.

Synopsis

Move over Junie B. Jones! Get to know Piper Green as she discovers the ordinary magic right outside her front door.
 
Piper Green is in for another adventure when she finds an unusual whistle hidden inside the Fairy Tree in her front yard. But Piper doesn’t want a whistle... she wants a pony! On a trip with her dad to check the family’s lobster traps, the whistle attracts the attention of an unexpected friend. Could the fairy whistle be working its magic after all?
 
"Following in the fine tradition of spunky girls – Ramona, Amber Brown, Judy Moody, Clementine – Piper Green is set to make some friends in the early chapter book world." —School Library Journal 100 Scope Notes
 
★ “Skillfully blending humor, pathos, and warmth with an atmospheric setting, Potter has created an honest, empathic slice-of-life story, laced with a touch of magic.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review


From the Hardcover edition.
