From the Publisher
Annotation Fritz, a gentle, hardworking pony, knows he will never be accepted and loved like the beautiful horses who live in the magnificent walled city. Like all the other creatures, Fritz is not allowed in the walled city because he is not as good looking as the beautiful horses. Will Fritz ever find a way to become appreciated and loved by the city people? Color illustrations accompany the text.
First Line Once there was a walled city known for its beautiful horses. There were magnificent jumpers, splendid chargers, and elegant parade horses. The citizens were so proud of these horses that it was decreed that only the most beautiful would be allowed in the city. All others would have to stay outside.
Editors Note Fritz, a pony excluded from the group of beautiful horses within the walled city, becomes a hero when he rescues the children of the city. "Brett has created magnificent paintings that glorify her simple but engaging story." -- Publishers Weekly|IRA/CBC Children's Choice
