I got this softcover from Better World Books for another release copy. (It was the 1949 Newbery Award winner.)

I enjoyed Henry's horse-themed books when I was a kid, and am glad to have another copy of this one to release. It's supposedly based on fact, though with some embellishments, and features Wesley Dennis' lovely illustrations throughout.

[There's a TV Tropes page on the book, with some entertaining tidbits. And there's a 1990 film inspired by the book.]
