    *Starred Review* This unfinished, hidden gem was first uncovered by Geisel's wife, Audrey, in Ted's studio. A publisher's note at the book's end explains how, after his death, she found a box that contained a manuscript and rough pencil sketches for a book titled Horse Museum, possibly written in the 1950s. The text and rough pencil sketches outlined the story and highlighted artists from all cultures. In this finished adaption, Australian illustrator Joyner has referenced Seuss' style with his digitally created pictures and energetic characters. Why the horse, when Seuss was not an avid rider? "A horse is many, many different things to different people and so is art." With a bow-tied horse as narrator, the book invites children and adults to enter a museum to see what artists across the world have done with the horse through the centuries, using line drawing, ceramics, sculpture, weaving, and painting. Art terms and styles (e.g., Impressionism, Expressionism, Surrealism, Cubism, and Abstract) are defined in bold letters and elaborated upon in extensive endnotes. The simple text and large trim allow Joyner to show a wide range of children and adults having fun while visiting an art museum, with some attempting to produce their own versions of a horse—and familiar characters appearing as museum visitors. Excellent for a first visit to an art museum and as a jumping-off point for young artists seeking creative style.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Few names are as recognizable in picture books as Dr. Seuss, and this posthumous offering will have many eager readers. Grades 1-4. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
