About The Book

From acclaimed and prolific author Jane Yolen comes the fourth hilarious Level 2 Ready-to-Read in the Interrupting Cow series about a very unusual horse.

There’s a new horse at the farm and he’s unlike any horse that Interrupting Cow has ever met. It turns out he’s a zebra! Zebra knows a lot of jokes—and all about the big bright world beyond the farm. Could this new friendship be the start of Interrupting Cow’s next big adventure?
