KIRKUS REVIEW

No match for Cole's The Poetry of Horses (above), this collection of 22 horse poems in picture-book format is illustrated with dull pencil drawings that give the same drab, vacant look to every entry, from William Carlos Williams' sharp, precise ""The Horse"" to the sentimental ""Prayer of the Old Horse"" by Carmen Bernos de Gasztold. Contributors range from standard giants (Whitman, Shakespeare) to standard children's writers (Arleen Fisher, James Reeves), and the wide range in quality and age level makes no sense in such a skimpy collection. Slack.
