Chester, a wild horse who wants to be tame, comes to the city looking for a home.
Syd Hoff was born and raised in New York City. He studied at the National Academy of Design and sold his first cartoon to The New Yorker when he was eighteen. He eventually became one of the most original and beloved authors and illustrators of children's books. Mr. Hoff wrote more than fifty books for children, including the I Can Read titles Danny and the Dinosaur, Oliver, and Sammy the Seal.
"Chester, a wild horse who wants to be tame, comes to the city
looking for a home. Reading for fun: the artist's sense of pacing
makes this book race along."
