I loved this true story written in verse about a wonder of a horse, who was quiet and had the knack, and love, of standing still. This isn’t the usual positive attribute of a horse, so you’ll need to read all the ways that “worked” positively only because Blackie stood still. He was so beloved that a memorial can be found where his final days were spent, a memorial to the horse that was always there, the friendly greeter to hundreds who saw and visited him.

These paintings, fat and tacky with paint and ink, are terrific. But the AABB rhyme is TOO LONG!
