Fitting in is very important when you’re young—whether you’re a kid or a colt. But what if you feel as if you’re different from al...l your friends? I Want to Be You is the illustrated story of Zip, a young horse who doesn’t look like the others. A yellow palomino, Zip stands out among the black and chestnut horses at his ranch.
