TKE presents ONLINE | Artie Bennett | The True Story of Zippy Chippy: The Little Horse That Couldn't

Join children's book author Artie Bennett for a storytime headlined by his new picture book, The True Story of Zippy Chippy: The Little Horse That Couldn't. This virtual storytime will appear on the bookshop's Facebook channel Live!

Zippy Chippy is descended from the leading legends of horse racing. He is destined for greatness and glory.

But . . . when the starting bell rings, it's anybody's guess what Zippy will do. Will Zippy go for a gentle trot around the track or stop and smell the roses? Or, perhaps, never even leave the starting gate?!

With mischief in his makeup, he's known to stick his tongue out at people and chew up the hats of passersby. And he's always trying to break out of his stall. What's an owner to do? Try and try again! After all, he believes in Zippy--and, besides, the horse is now a part of the family. But as Zippy's losses mount, a funny thing happens. People start to take notice of the hapless, cupcake-eating horse. Could it be that they're betting on Zippy to win?

This remarkable story of the famed racehorse who lost every race is sure to win your heart!
