I have a hunch this sort of humor appeals more to grown-ups than to children and that children would find it merely silly. The story of a horse that was too proud of his fine tail, and of how he lost it wisp by wisp. And of the little girl who gave him a purple fringe as a substitute. Illustrated by Pelagie Doane, with the sort of imitative drawings intended to look like a child's own work. I'd pass it up.
