Staff Reviews


We all begin drawing in beautiful simplicity as we explore our creativity that floods our young minds.  Our characters go on great adventures and become our own heroes.  We love them because they are completely and uniquely ours.  Nobody sees them the same way we, the artist, see them.  Randy the Beautiful Horse is a retelling of this childhood story of creativity and discovery as he goes on great adventures narrated by his artist.  He was not given a gorgeous mane, elegant legs, a silky coat, or a perfect smile, but even though he isn’t an elegant or graceful horse, he is loved and believed in by his artist.  For Randy, this is enough to feel beautiful.

— From Anna Grace

Description


T. L. McBeth's Randy, the Badly Drawn Horse is the hilarious picture book tale of a child's illustrated creation who (never having seen himself) thinks he's extraordinarily beautiful.

Randy knows he’s a beautiful horse—everyone says so. From his silky coat to his perfect smile to his very name, reserved only for the most special of creatures, Randy is beyond compare.

This laugh-out-loud picture book plays with expectations and takes you inside a child's imaginary world, through construction-paper mountains, popsicle-stick forests, and sandpaper deserts. Readers are sure to fall for this maybe-not-so-beautiful but wholly endearing character.
