Ed Galing, illustrated by Erin Stead

Tony was all white,
large, sturdy,
with wide gentle eyes
and a ton of love...

it was early in the morning
around three a.m.,
but I was up, and would
go out and pat Tony with my gentle arms, and his head would bow down.

A touching tale of a boy and a horse, by the late poet Ed Galing and illustrated with remarkable tenderness by Caldecott-winning artist Erin Stead.
