4.75 STARS "The main character is a horse named Lars.  Three words that might describe him are adventuresome, energetic, and curious.  If that sounds like any children you might know, I think the connection is intentional. This is a story that appeals to children who see possibilities that others might miss. "

"A unique feature is definitely the design , which is not overwrought but simply beautiful. The red horse Lars is a great character, with which you can identify with some children: better to have an adventure than to go to sleep! Yet at some point even an adventurous horse is tired."
