A new witty and exuberant fable from this best-selling partnership. A lazy horse will do nothing except stand still - except on Sundays, when she sits down. She won't go 'giddy up' for the farmer , nor 'trot off' for his wife, noe play cowboys for their son, nor jump for their daughter. There are no incentives that will work. Not carrots, oats, apples- not even a sugar lump! So she gets sold to a tinker, and then to the circus - and then to a butcher. And then the lazy dobbin demonstrated that, though lazy, she wasn't stupid- she ran like the wind! Praise for recent titles from this zany couple- ADPOLE'S PROMISE- "It's terrific" Posy Simmons ON'T LET GO- "Full of breezy exhilaration" Sunday Times; "A perfect book about learning independence" Publishing News. WANT TO BE A COWGIRL- "A pleasure to read aloud" Financial Times ANKY MONKEY- "Really made me laugh out loud" Irish Times.
