Powell's Does it Again

There's an aisle in Powell's bookstore that captivates me. It is the young adult animal story aisle, and is frequently peppered with vintage animal books that I can't resist taking home. Especially when they're only five dollars, and filled with lovely old illustrations.
This is my most recent purchase, "Ponycraft". What's not to love? In this slim volume you can learn how to choose a pony, care for it, and turn it out for a show. In a happier world we would all spend more time on our ponycraft, and less time worrying about the badness out there.
