Activity Kit: Randy, The Badly Drawn Horse

Randy knows he’s a beautiful horse—everyone says so. From his silky coat to his perfect smile to his very name, reserved only for the most special of creatures, Randy is beyond compare.

This laugh-out-loud picture book plays with expectations and takes you inside a child’s imaginary world, through construction-paper mountains, popsicle-stick forests, and sandpaper deserts. Readers are sure to fall for this maybe-not-so-beautiful but wholly endearing character.

★”[Randy] will make readers laugh . . . . Give this book a prime spot on the metafiction shelf.”
School Library Journal, starred review

“McBeth’s meta-comedy is filled with three-dimensional illustrations . . . . A lovely affirmation of creativity and unconditional love.”
Publishers Weekly
