The Horse Who Had His Picture in the Paper.McGinley,/Helen Stone, ill Lippincott

The Horse Who Had His Picture in the Paper.

When Brownie, the fancy NY police horse who has had his picture in the paper, moves into the stall next to Joey's, Joey begins to wish for fame. If Joey could have his picture in the paper, his owner could afford new shoes for his six children. After a string of funny adventures, he achieves his heart's desire. Lively, stylish, though not particularly equestrian, drawings illustrate this sweet tale. A new story about Joey, "The Horse Who Lived Upstairs" by the same author/artist team.

Black Beauty: as told by Uncle Mal for today's boys and girls.

Bernice Magnie, an Art Instructor, educator, and collector, from the Far West, illustrated only this and Sondo a Liberian Boy. Her Black Beauty might have been thought too sophisticated for its intended audience, as quite a few nice ones in jacket survive. However, the illustrations are gorgeous, swirling black and green lithographic crayon. They are stylized but show an affinity for horses: she's got the way they lean into people they love. Sewall's story is retold for young children by Uncle Mal, who retold stories "in a modern manner... on his famous Radio Hour." NOTE: This Book has been sold.
