For his sixth birthday, Ricky receives the best present ever, Mobo, a mechanical horse. With a few pumps of Ricky's legs, he and Mobo race across the floor. Nothing could be better!
Then Ricky's mom tells Ricky about the neighborhood block party and race. Children will compete to find out who is the fastest. Ricky is sure he and Mobo will win the race.
But when the big day comes, not everything goes according to Ricky's plans.
Roscoe Orman has been delighting children for over thirty years portraying "Gordon Robinson" on Sesame Street. Ricky and Mobo is his first children's book and recounts a true incident in his life. Roscoe also illustrated this charming story.
