A classic in the making, this heartwarming story about empathy and imagination is one that families will treasure for years to come. Adrian Simcox tells anyone who will listen that he has a horse--the best and most beautiful horse anywhere. But Chloe does NOT believe him.  Adrian Simcox lives in a tiny house.  Where would he keep a horse? He has holes in his shoes.  How would he pay for a horse?The more Adrian talks about his horse, the angrier Chloe gets.  But when she calls him out at school and even complains about him to her mom, Chloe doesn't get the vindication she craves.  She gets something far more important. Written with tenderness and poignancy and gorgeously illustrated, this book will show readers that kindness is always rewarding, understanding is sweeter than judgment, and friendship is the best gift one can give.
