Paul Brown (1893-1958) was an American author and illustrator, best known for his lovely illustrations of many equine books stories, but he did also write and illustrate some pony stories of his own. He was born in Minnesota and began sketching from an early age. He was one of America's premier illustrators of books about horses and equine sports. He did not ride or own a horse but he spent innumerable hours studying them and was a big fan of racing, polo and horseshows. As well as the many non-fiction equestrian books he illustrated, there were also lots of children's stories. In the 1930s he began to write his own pony stories illustrated with his own work. These were mainly books for younger readers/picture books. He also provided illustrations for numerous magazines and worked as a commercial artist for Brooks Brothers. (from Pony Mad Booklovers).
