Charleston landmarks and historic attractions are beautifully highlighted in a new children’s book written and illustrated by local designer and author Andrew Barton. “Heyward the Horse Loves Charleston, Of Course!” is the tale of Heyward M. Pinckney IV, a carriage horse in downtown Charleston.
Heyward takes visitors on a carriage ride past a variety of Charleston area landmarks and attractions, including Riley Waterfront Park, Rainbow Row, historic churches and the Charleston City Market. With his magical bow tie, Heyward is able to fly his carriage over the Holy City, pointing out the marshes, plantations and the beaches.
Local children will love seeing the landmarks they pass each day, and the book is a perfect souvenir for children who want to recall their Charleston visit during their evening storytime.
A father of two children under the age of 3, Barton has spent a lot of time reading children’s books. Combining his love of history and drawing, he decided to publish his own book focused on the city he’s called home for the last decade.
“When our children are born and raised in Charleston, they may not realize what a truly special city this is. I wanted to create a book that would be fun and imaginative while also highlighting some of the many landmarks and historic sites that are unique to the city,” Barton said.
Published by Timeless Tower Publishing LLC, “Heyward the Horse Loves Charleston, Of Course!” will be available in paperback for $10.99 and hardback for $18.99 on Amazon beginning Feb. 24 and at select Charleston area bookstores and retail outlets. Visit www.heywardthehorse.com for more details.
Join Barton for a book launch kickoff party and reading of “Heyward the Horse Loves Charleston, Of Course!” The event is 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 24 at Maxtrix Kids Rooms, 816 Johnnie Dodds Blvd. in Mount Pleasant. Purchase copies of the book and enjoy a balloon artist, children’s activities and more.
