A Friend for Einstein: The Smallest Stallion
A Friend for Einstein: the Smallest Stallion
By Charlie Cantrell and Dr. Rachel Wagner
Hyperion Books, 2011, unpaged. Picture Book.
This is an picture book about the smallest horse in the world. His name is Einstein and when he was born he was only about the size of a shoe box. Einstein is lonely, but he is too small to play safely with the other miniature horses. He decides to find a friend, but the duck and the turtle are not good playmates for Einstein. At last he discovers a friend who likes to play and is just his size. The book is illustrated with bright color photographs of Einstein and his friends. The author includes an end note about Einstein's pedigree and how the author and his wife (the illustrator) came to own the precious little horse. This is a must see for horse lovers of all ages.
