Gertie, the Horse who Thought and Thought

Whittlesey House, New York, 1951, 88 pp, illus Louis Slobodkin

Kirkus review


Gertie is a Clydesdale. She leaves one owner, and ends up working at an island hotel set on the
side of a lake. No one there thinks very much of Gertie, but Tommy does. He teaches her tricks,
and Gertie comes into her own when Tommy is lost.








Margarite Glendinning is an author about whom I’ve been able to find out virtually nothing. If anyone can supply any biographical details, I’d be very grateful.


Finding the book: reasonably easy to find, but good copies can be expensive.
