"Clippety clap clippety clap "A is for Amos and I'm on his back"B for the bumpety bridge we cross"C for the clippety clop of his trot . . . So begins an infectious rhythmic chant that takes a girl on an imaginary adventure on a wonderful horse. The countryside, the animals they see along the way, and a dramatic storm all figure in a story that takes its lead from the progression of the alphabet. Energetic watercolor illustrations adroitly capture the excitement of the ride, one readers will want to take again and again.
