Funny story. Well written poem. A very original & funny story about how a rogue horse saves a drought stricken community by getting the wicked landlord to part with everything he owns. It's a long narrative poem & the lines scan really well. Easy to read out loud, it's now one of our favorite read-aloud bed-time books.
