For young cowboys and little scientists, an ARE YOU MY MOTHER? for the 21st century!
For his birthday, Roy's freinds give him a saddle and some very specific instructions:
1. Find a horse.
2. Enjoy the ride!
But there's a problem; Roy doesn't know what a horse IS! So he sets off to find out with hilarious results: A snake tells him to look for a creature with legs. A crab has six legs, but he's too unfriendly to be a horse. A chameleon smiles at Roy, but horses don't change color... What's a horseless cowboy to do?
About the Author
Andy Rash was born on a mountain top in Tennessee and raised in the small polymer town of Kingsport, where all green plastic soda bottles come from.

Since graduating, Andy has been a freelance illustrator, working for many national magazines and newspapers. He has also taught illustration at the School of Visual Arts.
In addition, Andy finds himself at the beginning of a remarkable career in children's books. His first picture book, The Robots Are Coming, an American Bookseller Pick of the Lists, was published by Arthur A. Levine Books / Scholastic.

Very cute and funny book for young readers. Reading Counts level 1.1.
Roy gets a saddle for a birthday present, but he must figure out what a horse is and find one before he can ride.
Our 3 year old daughter loves this book. The story lends itself to extra animation and her chuckles make it worth the effort.
