    I read this back in 1974/75 when I was in elementary school in Dayton, OH. I loved this book and would get lost in it. I constantly checked it out from my school's library. I was very upset when I realized I accidentally left my Lone Ranger comic (the one that came with the action figure that I got for Christmas) inside the book. When I went back later, it was already gone. I was 8-ish and it upset me. Laugh.

    Oh, internet I love you. I was recently reminded of this book that I read in Kindergarten and first grade. It is in black and white wonderful drawings and has no words. According to , it's 190 some pages. I remember checking it out frequently to look at the pictures of a boy and his adventures with a Pegasus but not ever being sure if it was true or a dream.I HAD to buy it. When I do, I will update the review with a few more pics.

    This is an impressively illustrated book that wordlessly (and I mean wordlessly - no signs or clues to what is going on other than the picture itself) depicts a series of fantastic journeys a little boy takes with a winged horse. Is it magic? Is it a dream? In the end, the boy has a happy revelation. We enjoyed the book - did we take from it the same story everyone else will? I don't know. But it provides opportunities for discussion and we had fun narrating the story to each other. The black an [...]

    This is a special book with a sensitively rendered narrative of a child's interior dream life in pictoral form. The pictoral format and the book's picture-pace allow readers of any age to engage with this book on an intimate and personal level. It is also good for a parent and child, or two siblings, or a whole group to "read" it together by giving the pictures a story aloud to ne another.Just as there are no "right" answers about how to interpret someone else's dreams, there is no right or wron [...]

    Stunning! It's such a simple, but effective concept with a beautiful story that I'm quite literally in awe. This book will rank among my all time favorites from now on. And it's definitely not only for children.

    My boys love this book! No words, just pictures -- so we have made up the story on our own. It's also interesting how the story is always the same for us. If I add or take away anything, they know!

    Sometimes, words have no meaning, and sometimes they are unnecessary. That is certainly the case in the Silver Pony, which may be one of the most wonderful illustrated picture books I have ever had the delight to read. Simply marvelous in it's visual style and scope of story telling in pictures. A lonely farm boy escapes from his limited reality into the wider expanse of his imagination, where he discovers a mythical Pegasus, and on it's back they travel in each direction of the weather vane. In [...]

    I read this back in elementary school--"read" being loosely termed here, since this is a picture book. But I loved the illustrations and the way the story is told through the actions in the pictures.

    Beautiful fantasy with themes of environmentalism -- which I wasn't expecting at all. Ward is one of the best artists I have ever seen; the way he plays with space and values is unique and eye-catching. This was a story told in pictures without words and I feel this was executed superbly, the plot can be easily understood by sequence alone. Belongs in the library of any who appreciate illustration, fantasy, children's stories, or any combination of the three.

    Edited from a review originally published on my blog, Nine Pages.A wordless picture book! A wordless picture book from the ‘70s! So it’s a much older concept than I’d thought. I stumbled across this book in a local used bookstore. I was at first attracted by the title and then because the illustrations reminded me Wesley Dennis’ artwork. Dennis illustrated all of Marguerite Henry’s books, so the style was familiar and warm as a childhood security blanket. When I realized after several [...]

    This wordless story predates the use of the term "graphic novel," but I think that's the only term which fits.Told in eighty beautifully-drawn illustrations, this is the story of a young boy on a farm who has adventures both real and imaginary. It is easier and simpler to think in terms of the book's description, and assume that it's all in his head, butwould a young boy on a farm really know the details of life in a city brownstone, or on what appears to be a Navajo sheep ranch?It is not until [...]

    Wordless but breathtaking. This book inspired me as a little girl. It sparked my imagination. Now I share it with my 2 yr/o daughter every night before bed and she loves it. Silver Pony may not have color or words, but that only helps to drive the imagination forward. My daughter likes to help tell the story now that she knows it well, and she gets very wrapped up at the end as the boy and pony fall from the sky. It feels good to see her relax with a little smile when she sees the boy reunited w [...]

    Illustrated with lovely detail in black and white, The Silver Pony is all about those illustrations; the story contains no words. So maybe I read this only to pad my 2016 reading count (ack, 10 more to go on 12/14/16!), but I'm glad I did. It's a sweet story of a boy who imagines (or does he?) that he rides Pegasus, doing good deeds and favors for those the pair happen upon. I worried that the ending would be tragic, but very happy-making.

    I read an interesting article about this author/artist so I sought out this book. I wasn't as blown away as I expected after reading the article, but it was still as sweet, fanciful story. There are no words, only pictures.

    Read this book as a little kid. Made me want to communicate--write, talk, paint, draw, act, sing. And I assume my love of this book is why, at least in part, I'm not uncomfortable with conversational silence.

    Mixed feeling about this book. My child thought it cool because there was no text and he could "read" it by himself. I didn't care for some of the scenes, like the father taking the son to the woodshed for an over the knee spanking, it was also a pretty vague plot.

    Notes:beautiful b/w illustrationswordless picture book -- really long!magical story didn't really appeal to my horse-loving 6yo

    1973 hardcover edition is beautiful and can be had for cheap.Every other page is blank.I'm tempted to get a few copies and treat them like notebooks.

    A fun picture book, great for getting kids to think outside the box and explain what is happening in their own words.

    This book was pretty neat. It isn't a written story. It is a picture story; so it kind of lets you be creative and write the story.
