A Theodor Seuss Geisel Award Honor Book
Hold on to your hats! Two new pals have arrived on the scene: Cowgirl Kate and her stubborn, but devoted cowhorse, Cocoa. Together they count the herd, ride the range, and, of course, argue till the cows come home--as only best friends can do.
With its spirited text and bright, humorous illustrations by Caldecott Honor recipient Betsy Lewin, this first book in the Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa series is bound to be a hit with young wranglers everywhere.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Being that this is the first book in the series we cant wait to get more! The chapters are each short stories so it holds a young child's attention and it is very funny! The horse is always hungry and asking for food and Kate gets annoyed which makes me and my 2yr old laugh. The pictures are also adorable. Very cute read with a lesson that taking care of each other and teamwork pay off even if it isn't always fun.
