From the Publisher
Editors Note 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
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.
