Editorial 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
