"Steve is a fine horse, begins Kelly Collier s clever picture book. 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?"-- Amazon.com.

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?

A fun read overall with a light but meaningful message. Our EXCEPTIONAL brilliance lies within, not in all that glitters and shines. A fancy horn found in the forest makes Steve think this is his way to being exceptional and soon discovers it's not so. In the meantime, he creates a trend! An interesting way to express how to be mindful of trends and always look inside ourselves for our natural gifts. Illustrations are simple yet effective.

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.
