Something about horses captures kids’ imaginations. Is it their beauty? The sight of powerful muscles rippling under sleek skin? The feel of coarse hair whipping your face as you gallop across the plains?
Children’s author and illustrator C.W. Anderson understood kids’ connection to horses because he felt the same ties himself. So he wrote and illustrated Billy and Blaze — a timeless picture-book series about a boy and his horse.
Illustrated with wonderful pen and ink images on each spread
Meet Billy, a little boy who loves horses, especially his beautiful bay pony named “Blaze.” Billy and Blaze are nearly inseparable, galloping meadows, leaping logs, and having all sorts of adventures together. From forest fires and mountain lions to country races and sensitive horse-friends, Billy and Blaze are in for a wild gallop (or canter) around America.
Each Billy and Blaze story features large, easy-to-read words and lots of highly detailed pen and ink drawings. C.W. Anderson was an excellent artist and a horse-enthusiast, both of which traits shine forth in the Billy and Blaze series. Best yet, kids will learn lessons such as teamwork, friendship, sacrifice, bravery, and more.
The Billy and Blaze series includes eight paperbacks written and illustrated between 1936 and 1969.
