COCOA by Margaret Otto
Kirkus Star


Email this review


Pleasantly exciting small boy shenanigans on an Eastern farm have a wish-come true theme with strong cowboy overtones. Margaret Otto, whose latest story book is Stephen's Train, here makes 8-year old Peter very real -- as he wishes he had a fast cowpony to go with his cowboy suit- and then as he's given Mollie the farm horse's new colt Cocoa to care for. Summer adventures and a surprise ending will delight addicts and a warm yet serious humor will teach them a bit about growth too.
