Ed Galing

illustrated by Erin E. Stead

Tony was all white,
large, sturdy,
with wide gentle eyes
and a ton of love . . .

it was early in the morning
around three a.m.,
but I was up, and would
go out and pat Tony with
my gentle arms, and
his head would bow down

A touching tale of a boy and a horse, by the late poet Ed Galing and illustrated with remarkable tenderness by Caldecott-winning artist Erin Stead.

The late Ed Galing was born in 1917, spent his early years in the Lower East Side of New York City, and has been widely published in the small press.

Erin E. Stead is the illustrator of many picture books, including A Sick Day for Amos McGee, for which she won the Caldecott medal, the acclaimed And Then It's Spring (four starred reviews), If You Want to See a Whale (three starred reviews), and most recently Lenny & Lucy.
