Activity Kit: Randy, The Badly Drawn Horse

Activity Kit


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
