The Horse Who Stood Still
“The word quickly spread ‘bout the new horse in town
And from all ‘round the county young kids headed down
To the pasture where Blackie could always be found
Standing still, like a rock, on the same patch of ground.”
Blackie is the stubbornly motionless
equine hero of
Christopher Cerf and Paige Peterson’s delightful and
touching biography-in-verse, Blackie,
The Horse Who Stood Still. This (mostly) true tale is
the heart-warming story of a horse who made standing stock-still
a lifelong endeavor — as a champion rodeo horse, a tourist
favorite at Yosemite Park, a legendary environmental crusader
and the beloved mascot of one of America’s most beautiful
towns, Tiburon, California.
Magically illustrated by Peterson’s lyrical paintings, Blackie,
The Horse Who Stood Still is destined to become a children’s
classic. The playful, clever, rhyming text will charm adults
and children alike, while it quietly delivers an important
message about appreciating and preserving the natural beauty
