Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>Harry keeps a horse in his room. A trusty horse only he can see. But then his parents take him to the country to see "real" horses. Horses that are free to run, kick, and nibble. Now Harry must decide: Does his horse need to be free, too?</p> <p>"A satisfying fanciful story. Illustrated with the author's inimitable, humorous drawings." (Booklist)</p> <p>The Horse in Harry's Room is another sweet, original story by Syd Hoff, the celebrated author of Danny and the Dinosaur. This classic Level One I Can Read is perfect for shared reading with a child.</p>

Horn Book Review

Young city-dwelling Harry loves the (imaginary) horse who lives in his room but, conscience-stricken, offers him his freedom; Harry's horse chooses to stay right where he [is]. In a story built on a familiar theme, Hoff makes something spontaneous and true out of a few words and the simple lines of cartoonlike drawings (brightly colored in this new edition).
