About this title

Synopsis:

In the middle of a big city, a boy named Harry has a horse in his room! No one else can see the horse, but Harry loves him and hopes the horse will always stay.

But then Harry visits the country, where he sees horses running free, and he wonders if his own horse would be happier there.

The answer to Harry's question is wonderful and unexpected and is sure to please beginning readers as much as it does Harry. Syd Hoff has created a warm and satisfying story containing "few words [and] much wisdom".
