The First Book I Ever Loved

Adventures of the Little Wooden Horse by Ursula Moray Williams is the sweetest little book I can ever remember reading as a child and it's retained a special place on my bookshelf ever since.

Uncle Peder the toy maker crafts the most beautiful toys but none are more beautiful than the little wooden horse. When the toy maker falls on hard times and no one wants to buy his toys anymore, the toy maker's wife abandons the little wooden horse. He ends up being overworked in a coal mine, tightrope walking at the circus, cheated out of hard earned money, thrown over a house, he wears out his wheels.. and at one point loses his head. Despite the hardships and heartbreak, the loyal little wooden horse spends his life trying to return to his master's side and won't rest until he does.
