Harry and Horsie is an intergalactic journey of stellar friendship. After a restless night, Harry and his plush friend, Horsie, seek out the Super Duper Bubble Blooper. The Blooper’s bubbles freely flow until suddenly, they begin to buoyantly carry everything in their wake-including Horsie! As Horsie floats further into space, Harry sports his best cosmonaut gear and races his rocket towards the stars. Author Katie Van Camp‘s weightless and fluid story is colorfully complimented by illustrator, Lincoln Agnew‘s retro graphics. The “blooping” of Harry’s toy and the “zoom” of his atomic rocket splash across the pages in cosmic comicbook imagery. Van Camp’s story is an ode to every kid’s wish for a space odyssey which Agnew wonderfully renders in the poster art spirit of 1950′s sci-fi. Harry and Horsie shows that facing the final frontier may be a feat but going to the ends of the universe for a friend is truly heroic.
