Steve is a fine horse-- but he thinks he could be finer. He wants to be EXCEPTIONAL. When Steve finds a beautiful gold horn lying on the ground in the forest, he realizes he has found his path to the exceptional! He immediately ties the horn to the top of his head and prances off to show his friends. Not everyone is impressed, but most of his friends agree Steve and his horn are indeed exceptional. In fact, many of his friends are so inspired, they decide to tie items to the tops of their heads as well. So when Steve discovers his horn has suddenly gone missing, he's devastated and frantically searches everywhere to find it. He won't be exceptional without his horn! Or will he?

Steve is a horse and he wants to feel exceptional...when he finds a gold horn in the forest he is different and special. A fun story about being different and exceptional :) I enjoyed the illustration and story.

A quirky fun story about trying new things, setting trends, and being yourself. Unlike other stories that try to shove the message down the readers throat, this one makes sure that it's fun first, and message second.

Highly recommended for a story time.

Steve wants to be exceptional! When he discovers a golden horn, he seizes the opportunity, but crisis ensues when, as a trendsetter, he is suddenly unable to keep up with the trend. What is a horse to do?

Steve is a hoot! He just wants to be special but everyone keeps copying him. What's a horse to do? The author/illustrator, Kelly Collier, is Canadian.
