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. (from the first line)
|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. Full-color illustrations.|
From the Publisher:
Fritz, a common but not ugly horse, desires to be lived and ridden by children but finds that only a calamity will convince people that he, too, is a beautiful horse
