Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Following in the hoofsteps of Classic Western Stories, Classic Animal Stories, and other recent collections, this compilation of stories, poems, and artwork celebrates the relationship between horses and their devotees. Darling pulls from a wide range of familiar, beloved material: excerpts from Steinbeck's The Red Pony, Farley's The Black Stallion, and Lewis's The Horse and His Boy join poetry from Shakespeare, Farjeon, and Stevenson. Varied paintings and illustrations from throughout the 20th century underscore the point that the book offers something for all tastes. All ages. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
