A Horse of Course by Shari Lyle-Soffe

A Horse of CourseJoin Aaron, Mom and Dad on a charming and funny adventure in A Horse of Course by Shari Lyle-Soffe.

Grandpa Roy gives Aaron what he always wanted for his birthday–a horse!  Little do Aaron, Mom and Dad know what they are in for.  Horace the horse eats all the cake and ice cream, he hogs the television remote, uses Mom’s toothbrush, and even takes over Aaron’s bed.  What will Aaron do?

In this hilarious adventure, poor Aaron learns the meaning of the phrase, “be careful what you ask for”.  Here he is all excited to finally have a horse, and he soon discovers that maybe a horse won’t be so easy to take care of at his house.  Faced with a decision, he chooses a way that everyone can be happy.

I haven’t laughed so hard over a children’s book in a long time.   Between the storyline and the comical illustrations provided by Eugene Ruble, I laughed until my sides ached.  I’ve had the opportunity to read a few books that Ruble has illustrated, and his imagination and ability to bring a story to life through his pictures never ceases to amaze me.

A Horse of Course is another excellent addition to the list of titles from Shari Lyle-Soffe.  She is also the author of the popular Rooter and Snuffle series and Nothing Stops Noah.  Her love of nature and the fuzzy creatures that often stop by her yard, inspire her stories. 

Learning about right choices and how to make difficult decisions has never been so much fun.  Get your hands on a copy of A Horse of Course today!
