342K: White Horse Turns Pink After Eating Strawberries (Solved!)

As a child in the 1940’s I had a picture book about a white horse who loved strawberries but was allergic to them and turned pink when he ate them.  I do not remember the title or the author, but I do recollect a blue cover with a picture of a white (maybe pink horse).  I’d love to see that book again, or at least learn something about it.

  1. This is Parsley the Horse by Dorothea Filosa (1940) Garden City Publishing Co.

    Parsley behaves as a well brought up lady horse should, but whenever something pink is in sight, she gets scatterbrained.

  2. Melissa,
    Thank you!. I was able to find a copy of the book online. The cover was as I remembered – the blue cover exactly the shade and style that has stayed with me all these years. I’ve ordered the book and am looking forward to getting reacquainted.
    I am so grateful to you for responding to my query.
