Its not every day that you meet a black and white spotted horse with a low self-esteem.

Watoosi is embarrassed because he doesn’t look like any of the other horses, so he hides himself in a trailer. After going on a life-changing trip to the county fair, Watoosi finally discovers the truth—that his uniqueness makes him special. Pat Wiles’ giant watercolors are eye-catching and will make kids smile. —Tess Scherkenback, 11, Scottsdale, AZ
