The American edition doesn't help much.
The red background makes the book the thing of nightmares. I haven't ever actually read the book (possibly because I never held on to a copy long enough to read it, so perhaps the story's worth digging beneath the covers for). I think it's fair to say that there must be a truly scary horse somewhere in it. Or maybe it's just scared. I am going to have to get hold of one and find out.
