Overview

The Galloping Horses of Willowbrook is a children's whimsical that tells the heart-warming and true story of young Ivory Fenderson, who never got to ride on his father's 1894 carousel during the years it traveled from fair to fair throughout Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts because "his feet did not reach the stirrups." Ivory was ten when his father, after 26 summers, retired the traveling carousel and stored it in the family barn in Saco, Maine where it remained for the next 55 years. In 1977, Ivory donated his father's long-forgotten carousel to the Willowbrook Museum in Newfield, Maine with the promise of a full restoration, which took nearly 14 years. In 1991, at the age of 79, Ivory at last had his very first ride. Beautifully illustrated, the book will capture your heart and imagination.
