Young boys, even those not interested in horses, will love these books.

I read these books as a little kid... The illustrations are incredibly beautiful and lifelike, and the stories are equally enjoyable. Billy and Blaze's adventures would capture the heart and mind of any child -- or even adult! - with their emotional strength and superb literary quality. I can't recommend these books highly enough... every one of them.

I grew up reading the entire series of the Blaze books by C.W. Anderson and they have become favorites of my children. Billy loves his pony, and his pony loves him. There is a mutual respect that only love can inspire. Apart from the story, Anderson is a consumate illustrator.

All of the Billy & Blaze stories were among my favorites as a child; I'm so glad they are available again. The illustrations alone make these stories classic children's literature!

These boys have always loved books and can sit for as long as my voice continues so lots of books win the 5 stars with them but as they grow older it becomes more and more difficult to find stories that interest and are suitable for the age span. This series should get 6 stars because when I say, "How about a Billy and Blaze book?" the response from both is an excited "YESSS" The stories have just enough suspense without being scary and the relationship between the boy and his pony, his parents, friends and other adults he encounters models behavior we can all be proud to claim. Buy the first and you'll be hooked.

Format: Paperback
Billy is a young boy who "loved horses more than anything else in the world." He learns how to ride using some neighbor farmer's work horse and pretending that it is a prancing pony. One day he gets his very own beautiful bay pony for his birthday and names it Blaze because of the white streak down its face. Billy and Blaze go riding through the fields and woods. Billy rescues a dog from a trap, names it Rex and, since the owner could not be found, keeps it for a pet. Billy and Blaze learn to jump over fences and fallen trees with ease, but are they good enough to win the gleaming silver cup at the Mason Horse Show?

This charming story is the first book in the classic Billy and Blaze series. Author and illustrator Clarence William Anderson (1891-1971) is best-known for his "Billy and Blaze" books which revolve around proper care of the horse while teaching a valuable lesson. All of the tales which Anderson wrote were based on true events or people that he knew--only the plots were fictitious. The Billy and Blaze stories are enjoyable, and the lively black and white illustrations are incredibly beautiful and realistic. There are a total of eleven books about Billy and his horse. Unfortunately, not all of them are in print. Aladdin publishes a set that includes eight of them. With their simple but exciting text and emphasis on kind treatment to animals, they would make excellent early readers for children in second to fourth grades.

Billy loves horses so imagine how excited he is when he receives a pony for his birthday! Blaze is a bay pony with four white feet and a white nose. Read about their adventures together.

This books teaches children responsibility as they see Billy caring for his horse along with compassion when Billy rescues a dog from a trap. The black and white, full page illustrations are absolutely exquisite. The text is simple but detailed enough for the older, more independent reader and the story is interesting. Once we started reading this series as a family the kids all wanted more!

This is the first in the series so I recommend reading this one first so that you understand how Blaze and Rex came into Billy's life.

I loved these books when I was a little girl and I was excited to share them with my son. Unfortunately at age 3.5 his attention span wasn't long enough for this particular story. However, I gave the book to my 6 year old brother and he adored it. I enjoyed re-reading the book too. The story is timeless and fun. I can't wait till my son is old enough to appreciate these (we'll try again next year!)

for fun and adventure.
The Billy and Blaze series is great fun. Young boys, even those not interested in horses, will love these books. My 7yo has never had an interest in horses (he thinks they smell bad) but he hangs on to every word of these adventurous stories.
