||They call him the Cowboy kid, the strange boy who lassoes trash cans and whinnies like a horse. He dreams of escaping the city, of riding away on a golden steed of his own. And then, one wonderful night, the Cowboy Kids dreams come true. A magnificent stallion carries him to the heavens on a magical ride. Soon they are joined by other horses, leaping from paintings, jumping down from stone pedestals in parks, and breaking free of merry-go-rounds -- and they lead a riotous stampede of marble, wood, and paint through the streets of the town and beyond. A beautiful book about freedom and the urge to break away for the child in everyone.
