Arnold Dobrin wrote and illustrated numerous children’s books, both fiction and non-fiction. He was a keen traveller, and this provided background for several of his books, including Irish, which allowed him to write about two passions: horses and Ireland.
Finding the book:reasonably easy to find in the USA. It was not published in the UK.
