No Ordinary Horse is a charming work of whimsical fiction penned for children and it was written by author S. R. Tease, with accompanying illustrations by Eva Rodriguez. Adding a new layer of cuteness to the picture book genre, this charming tale features a bright and brave little horse as its central protagonist, and we are about to learn that she is no ordinary horse indeed. Through her fears of not being normal and not fitting in with the other horses, this special little creature will learn the truth about having bigger dreams than those around her, and what it takes to break free and achieve them.
In a world of image culture and fitting in with looks, this delightful and adventurous picture book begins to teach the values of personal, individual beauty and appreciating oneself from an early age, and it’s something to be truly celebrated. The illustrations by Eva Rodriguez are certain to engage children right from the off, especially for the bright and expressive faces of the characters, helping readers to see the beauty of our central little gem even when she can’t see it herself. Coupled with the gorgeous wordplay and deceptively simple brilliance of author S. R. Tease’s phrasing, the result becomes a compelling story of triumph over the feelings that society sometimes gives us, and the rising up and empowering feeling of being our authentic selves against the odds. Overall, No Ordinary Horse is an essential self-esteem building book for young readers to enjoy again and again.
