Marilyn (kalariah) | 5 comments Short book for ages 5-7, boy has two horses (I think they’re imaginary) named Horace and HORACE. I was born in the early 80s and I grew up with it. Probably came out before I was born.

Marilyn (kalariah) | 5 comments It might be, but that book only mentions one horse. I remember specifically the boy saying his horses were named Horace and HORACE. (Yes, in all caps.)

Marilyn, is this a children's picture book or novel?

If a picture book: can you describe the illustrations - e.g., simple or detailed, realistic or cartoony, painted watercolors or bold graphics, bright or dark colors, black & white? Do they remind you of a similar illustrator or picture book author?

Marilyn (kalariah) | 5 comments It’s a children’s picture book, it’s been so long that I don’t remember much, but I believe it was in tri-color style. More cartoonish than realistic.

Thanks. I added some details to the topic header, so your book might be recognized from the header alone. Feel free to update it by clicking the small "edit" link after the header. This only works on the full Desktop website – not the Mobile website or app.
