Book Review: A Horse of Course by Shari Lyle-Soffe

Good Thursday to all you book fans. Zebee here. Today’s story made all of us here at the V Zoo laugh when our boss Joy read it to us. It made us think what it would be like to live . . . Let’s see what Joy’s review says about the story.

* * * * *

“A Horse of Course” is a fun romp through a child’s imagination of what it would be like to have a horse for a pet. It’s Aaron’s birthday and Grandpa Roy gives him a horse for a present. Aaron is very happy and decides to name him Horace. When asked where Horace will live, Aaron says “With me of course,” and so begins a wild and often messy adventure.

Shari has brought to life what it would be like to have a horse live with you as if they were a cat, dog or another child. The hilarious turn of events is sure to have any child laughing. Eugene Ruble’s illustrations are whimsical and give Horace his loveable personality.

Most of us agreed, we’d like to visit someone’s home, but we really like living her at the V Zoo. So, can we come to YOUR house for a day or two?
See you back here Sunday with more zoo news.
