One day, Billy and Blaze decided that they were going to explore an old road that winds through the woods. Nobody seems to use the road anymore, and that means it must be packed with adventure!

When a storm blows in and Billy loses his way, it is up to Blaze to find their way back home. Can he prove that he is indeed the finest pony in all the world?


The Billy and Blaze series fills a unique gap as far as intended audience goes. It is extremely simple – a first grade reading level – but

I do like these books!

The Billy and Blaze books were some of my favorites from when I was young. This is the first time I’ve read one for probably close to twenty-five years, and I have to say it held up beautifully. The language is simplistic without being condescending. As this was a book I read to myself early on, I would recommend it for aspiring readers.

My horse lovin' lil' ones think the world of these books with excellent illustrations and solid story lines. We love Billy & Blaze books. CW Anderson's illustrations grew into amazing pieces of art over time (compare Billy & Blaze, the original book to his later efforts) that accurately depict horses at their finest.
