Return to the Bookshelf
The little horse returned to his family on the bookshelf. Bel Canto was waiting for him, wearing the necklace he had brought her from his adventure in Mexico. She was eager to hear all about his adventures in California. The little horse told her about the desert, about the prickly pears that weren’t really pears, the dinosaurs that were really lizards. “Were they Gila Monsters?” asked Bel Canto.
“Well,” said the little horse, “I can’t be sure for certain. But they might have been. I didn’t stick around to find out!”
Bel Canto laughed when he described the flamingos and how rude they had been to him. “I would have just knocked them over on their pink stumpy tails!” she said.
