About the author

Florence Battle Robertson was an American author of children’s books. Together with her husband, Martin B Robertson, she wrote Creative Writing. She wrote the Jerry series of easy readers. Jerry Goes Riding (1950) is part of the series, although horses are not apparently the only thing Jerry rides. The book covers other, perhaps less attractive things one can ride, such as trucks and cars.
