Poetry can be a blast if it's poetry about crazy pets and animals. That's what Rockin' Horse is all about. Dozens and dozens of short, light poems designed to amuse and entertain even the most reluctant readers. There are poems about the most common pets like dogs, cats and fish, but there are also poems about skunks, pigs, tigers, chimpanzees and...oysters. And speaking of oysters, here's a poem from the book:
Oysters are the perfect pet.
All you do is keep them wet.
Tell them, "sit" and tell them, "stay"
And they never disobey.
