In this fifth book in the series, Cocoa nudges his way right into Cowgirl Kate's house. He pokes his head through every doorway and finally decides to live in the best stall of all--the kitchen. What's a cowgirl to do? Well, whether under one roof--or two--there's no doubt these buckaroos will be pals forever!

Praise For Horse in the House

"Lewin's signature watercolors will continue to delight young readers, especially when showing Cocoa's disdain for his former abode and his delight at the riches of the refrigerator . . . Just right for the new reader who loves horses."--Kirkus Reviews
