Harry isn't the most handsome or graceful horse in the barn, but he has a knack for calming even the most excitable filly. All's well until the arrival of six-year-old Algernon Adams the Third--a boy with a talent for mayhem. When Algernon finds himself in a pinch, will reliably helpful Harry come to his rescue or go back to sleep and let the little terror figure his own way out of a sticky situation?
