Reviews

"Astonishing."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"The tenderness of his words ("Tony was all white, / large, sturdy, / with wide gentle eyes/ and a ton of love"), combined with Stead's exquisite portraits, allows readers entry into the world shared by boy and horse."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The muted pencil drawings are gorgeous and soft, a comfort simply to view. The gray and aqua coloring puts readers in predawn's light, with the yellow highlights perfectly yielding a sense of warmth. The illustrations and text work together perfectly, conveying a story for readers of all ages."--School Library Journal

"A lovely tribute to a bygone service, especially for equine fans."--Booklist
