The Red Pony
could be more starkly simple than this new book, The Red Pony, which
consists merely of three episodes in the life of a 10-year-old boy. In
other hands, these slight, delicate stories, quite unremarkable in
theme, might have struck one as somewhat jejune and certainly not
exciting. As it is, they are pure gold and furnish the most exacting
proof he has given of Mr. Steinbeck’s artistry.” –Edith H. Walton, New
York Times Book Review, 1937
