Rosie's Magic Horse

Written by: Russell Hoban and Quentin Blake

First line: There was an ice-pop stick with ice-cold sweetness all around it, white on the outside, pink on the inside.

Why you should read this book: From two long-time great names in picture books comes a piece of delicious nonsense full of wishes, popsicle sticks, magic, travel, and treasure. Little Rosie, while idly toying with her collection of wooden sticks, wishes she could help her parents pay the bills, while the wooden sticks, for undisclosed reasons, wish to be a horse. Together, Rosie and a horse called Stickerino go on a journey to fulfill all their dreams.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You don't allow your children to pick trash up off the ground.
