This was a very cute story that made me smile. It shows how ugly prejudice, being judgmental, and cruelty is. Hopefully after reading this book, children will see that they can’t judge someone by what they look like, and that it’s good to make friends that are a little different from them.
Margaret’s illustrations in this book were fantastic. Horses are beautiful creatures, but the lines, coloring, and light cast through the watercolor paintings were beautiful. here is one of my favorites.
