This dynamic collection of twenty-one poems celebrates all things horse-related--from the reflective to the very silly, from the winsome to the hilariously icky. Sandra Alonzo's lively, always evocative writing captures the energy and physicality of these stunning creatures. And with her richly expressive illustrations and a gorgeous palette, Kelly Murphy expertly creates shifting landscapes, changing seasons, and charismatic horse personalities. Alternately rambunctious and lyrical, Gallop-o-Gallop invites readers to celebrate our special relationship with these beautiful and inspiring animals.
