A cherished book for the young reader by Walter Farley an American author who wrote primarily horse books for children. Perhaps his most popular book was the Black Stallion (1941) followed by 19 more books in the series. The Little Black books were published in the early 1960s and were written for the Dr Seuss Beginner Book series and consisted of 3 titles: Little Black, A Pony (1961), Little Black goes to the Circus (1963) and The Little Black Pony Races (1968). Illustrated by James Schucker, these stories were fashioned after Mr Farley's personal experience growing up with his horse-trainer uncle. Little Black and his young boy have many adventures, and in this first book the love of a boy and his pony are challenged when the boy rides a stunning thoroughbred named Big Red, and it looks like Little Black will be replaced until he comes to the rescue as only Little Black can. This book is in excellent condition. 63 pages, hard cover, c1961
