Until the advent of delivery trucks, milk and eggs were brought to many American homes by horse and wagon. This is the late poet Galings homage to a delivery horse that meant the world to him. The tenderness of his words (Tony was all white,/ large, sturdy,/ with wide gentle eyes/ and a ton of love), combined with Steads exquisite portraits, allows readers entry into the world shared by boy and horse. Two-color spreads show glimpses of Tonys life: Tom, the milk truck driver, heading for the barn while its still dark, the light above the door casting a golden glow over them; the blue dawn breaking as Tony clip-clips through the streets; Tonys patient glance as he waits for Tom to return to the wagon. The milk is delivered early in the morning, around three a.m., but Galing is always up to see Tony: Wouldnt miss Tony for the world, he tells Tom. He is such a wonderful horse, and so handsome. Galings words testify to the pure love children feel for the first animals they come to know. Ages 36. Illustrators agent: Emily van Beek, Folio Literary Management. (Feb.)
