I can’t thank you enough for “My Sto­ry­book Horse” (Back Page, EQUUS 491), about C.W. An­der­son’s chil­dren’s book, Billy and Blaze. I also owned this book, along with ev­ery other book C.W. An­der­son wrote or il­lus­trated.

An­der­son’s won­der­ful books were read to me and given to me as a child. Un­til I was big enough for a real pony, I made do look­ing at all his won­der­ful horse il­lus­tra­tions. Even to my childeyes, An­der­son’s draw­ings re­vealed his own love of horses, and it showed in the de­tails, such as their kind eyes and mus­cle def­i­ni­tion. I still own all those books, and at least once a year I sit down and read them all over again.

C. W. An­der­son was a trea­sured writer and il­lus­tra­tor, es­pe­cially for those of us who were kids in the late 1960s and ’70s. His rid­ing ad­vice still rings in my me­mory af­ter all these years. Beth Ma­son David­son, North Carolina
