Anna and the Magical Horse - Henry the Hobo - The Pond by Henry Denkhaus is a collection of three different stories as the title suggests. The first story, 'Anna and the Magical Horse,' is about a little girl and her toy horse who takes her to all the places that she dreams about and wishes to visit. The second story, 'Henry the Hobo,' is about a toy who is made fun of by others because of his shabby dress sense. A little girl teaches him that there are bigger things in life like love, which is more important. 'The Pond' is more of a humorous story about the people who live around a park and the different types of characters they are.

All three books are different and they touch on different aspects and emotions associated with life. The first book is a sort of whimsical tale with a dreamy quality to it that will fascinate many readers because it takes you to a fantasy world which is always exciting. The second one has a message about how important love is in our lives and how it should be the dominating feeling within us. The author puts across the message in a very subtle way. The third story is about the different kind of people who live in our society.

All the stories can be read aloud for children and they make good bedtime tales. Though different in themselves, the stories are arranged in a manner that they progress along with the child. This is a beautiful book with three stories which help children develop their reading habits.
