Charleston landmarks and historic attractions are beautifully highlighted in a new childrenâ€™s book written and illustrated by local designer and author Andrew Barton. â€œHeyward the Horse Loves Charleston, Of Course!â€ 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.
