Billy and Blaze
The series centers around a resolutely good-natured, earnest adolescent boy named Billy, and the adventures he has while riding his loyal horse, Blaze. Some of the stories have repetitive elements, but they are all uniformly satisfying, and great for horse lovers to explore. Each story stands alone, although there is some continuity from book to book. The sketchy, black-and-white drawings are wonderful, and a centerpiece of the series. The content is a bit dated, but the books are essentially still as entertaining now as they were in the decades when they were written. Anderson wrote numerous other outdoorsy books, including some with horse-related themes, and I may review some of those later as well.
Billy and Blaze was written and illustrated in by Clarence William Anderson. It is the first of a series of eleven books and is Anderson's most well known.

Post a Comment. Tuesday, March 7, The Billy and Blaze series. Anderson was an author and an artist who loved horses. He created more than 30 children's books about in all, including an book series about a boy names Billy and his horse Blaze. It all begins with the horse-loving Billy getting his birthday wish: his very own pony. If your children like horses even a little bit they will love these books, because every second page is filled with another illustration of a horse in action. Anderson's sketches are big, and detailed, and beautiful.
