Horse is all set to paint a mural his way, oblivious to Buggy’s suggestions that a bit of planning might be a good idea. But as the Horse knocks over paint cans and sends brushes flying, he relents and accepts some help from Buggy. The hilarious antics and easy-to-read text will put smiles on the faces of fledgling readers.

Full-color digital illustrations.

Horse and Buggy are back. In this outing, Horse is going to paint a mural, and he’s going to do it his way. He is wearing an artist’s beret, so what could possibly go wrong? Despite Buggy’s helpful suggestions, he is convinced that he doesn’t need a plan. Of course, a huge mess ensues with paint everywhere and culminates with Horse slipping and landing flat on his back. “Buggy? Can you help me?” Yes, Buggy can (and does) with his four-point mural painting plan. The result is a colorful mural of flowers. And oh, the colors – Long does not stint on them. The changing backgrounds go from greens and blues to orange and yellows, which are the perfect base for the blue, yellow, purple, and orange paint that Horse manages to get everywhere. Using panels, spreads, speech bubbles, and various fonts, Long keeps readers engaged and the story moving along. The humor is accented by the facial expressions of Horse and Buggy. In the style made popular by the Mo ­Willems’s “Elephant and Piggie” books, Horse and Buggy eventually work together to paint a lovely mural. It also works surprisingly well as a primer on how (and how not) to paint a mural.
