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