Frank Waters, author of “The Golden Age of Show Jumping” has written a brilliant children’s book called “Toby Rogue” illustrated by Joyce Bugaiski. 

Frank’s story and Joyce’s artwork bring this story about a mischievous Shetland pony, at Rowlers Riding School, to life. Toby Rogue is adopted by a student for her children. Unknown to her is that Toby Rogue will live up to his name and prove to be a lovable rogue in his new home.


​5.0 out of 5 stars Toby Rogue - a fun character, a great story and a thoughtful lesson for kids

I was looking for something different and unique to give to my friend's daughter (4) and one of my nephews (6). They have every barbie doll, power ranger dvd, star wars action figure you can think of. I love giving kids things that help develop their connection to words and their creativity. Toby Rogue sounds like a character that a child will have fun with. Hopefully the author will put out other books about Toby Rogue in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very cute children's book about a horse horsing around

Tony Rogue is a very entertaining childrens’ book cleverly illustrated by Joyce Bugiaski. It is the tale of a rascally Shetland pony who retires from riding school to a family home. Toby lives up to his name Rogue but also endears himself to the family and is very well behaved when the children ride him. The artwork adds much to the enjoyment of the story.

This book is a great story for young children, the illustrations by Joyce Bugaiski really bring the title character and the book to life! I will be looking for more books illustrated by Joyce. The twinkle in Toby Rogue's eye & smile on the cover is only the beginning. Good story - great illustrations!!! A book illustrated by Joyce Bugaiski put that on my must buy list.

I have not yet received my book but I've seen it, read it and re-read it. I love it. I love the story and I adore the illustrations. Thank you Frank and Joyce on the great collaboration and such a lovable little character as Toby. His grin says it all.
