The Lovereading4Kids comment
A charming rhyming story about a well-meaning horse whose change in feed leads to disastrous, smelly, and hilarious consequences…
Colin has always worked very hard at the farm, ploughing the fields and eating lots of hay to provide manure for the field. But when he tries the feed from the pigs, the cows and the chickens, his manure may help grow fantastic vegetables but also creates a stink that creates a national emergency…
With hilarious rhyme, cheeky humour and side splitting illustrations from Tor Freeman, this is the perfect read for music and animal loving children.
Colin the Cart Horse by Gavin Puckett
Colin was a cart horse, Hay his favourite treat. It was ever so soft and incredibly sweet. But the day he branched out and broadened his diet...Why, who could have guessed it would trigger a riot?
Gavin Puckett, Welsh comic extraordinaire, brings us another wonderful tale of rhyming fun and nonsense, in the very best tradition of Edward Lear and Hilaire Belloc.
