PBOTD 5th December: Marguerite Henry - The White Horse of Lipizza
That makes the Marguerite Henry books I have all the more precious, because they are absolutely loaded with illustrations. Marguerite Henry were illustrated by the brilliant Wesley Dennis, from her first book Justin Morgan Had a Horse, published in 1945.
Nearly twenty years later, Henry and Dennis were still working together. The White Stallion of Lipizza (1964) is the story of the Spanish Riding School's famous Maestoso Borina, who teaches the young rider, Hans, as he progresses from a beginner to a performing beireter.
