"Arnold the Smiling Horse", by Karine Nguyen-Tuong, a schoolteacher in Charlottesville, Virginia is the story of a young horse that lives on Winged Horse Island. Born without wings, Arnold goes searching for his wings and for answers to his many questions. Through his travels, he learns that one of his special qualities will take him as far as his wings would, if not farther. "Arnold the Smiling Horse" is a tender story that touches the adult as much as the child. In these times of war and dissention, it is wonderful as well as reassuring to be reminded of the power of the smile. Nguyen-Tuong's photographs of the Outer Banks Winged Horse Extravaganza horses provide beautiful images for this book.
