Format: Paperback
Hattie is not only known for her ravishing beauty every time she wears pretty bonnets, but also has a great mind. What brainstorm idea did Hattie have, and did it help race-horses? How did Hattie and her friends help Lily and Lucky? Charlene is as beautiful as Hattie, and is known for her unique jumping. Who had dreams, and did they come true? What talents did Hattie and Wooliam have, and what was 'Hattie's Star Coaching' known for? What did Charlene want to do in her spare time, and does she become successful? I highly recommend this delightful adventure to all young children, parents, teachers, and animal lovers. Deanie Humphrys-Dunne, who spent her childhood in a riding school, penned a remarkable story that's touched with humor and alive with thrills. An awe-inspiring story that will teach life's lessons as much as it will astonish the heart! The author takes the reader on an amusing adventure as the story teaches moral value, friendship, problem-solving, and challenges. A magnificent learning stimulation with adorable characters, who come to life. The unforgettable characters teach life's valuable lessons, the rewards of hard work, and how to be a good sport. Follow Charlene and all her friends in a fun-filled adventure that captures the beauty within the characters, that makes it all worthwhile as each page shines with love and trust. "CHARLENE THE STAR AND HATTIE'S HEROES" is as funny as FINDING NEMO, as entertaining as CHARLOTTE'S WEB, and as exciting as CHICKEN LITTLE.

I love this and all of the books by Deanie Humphrys-Dunne.

Having learned to overcome her own handicap (in "Tails of Sweetbrier"), Deanie presents a strong "can do" attitude in all of her stories. "Not giving up" to successfully accomplish your dreams is a constant theme.

Each book is loaded with experiences of personal pride and happiness due to accomplishing goals by "doing the hard work". The reader is inspired at every turn.

The stories are realistic, having obstacles as well as successes, and are filled with family or friends who help and encourage each other. In reading about one success after another through personal effort, the reader's personal dreams start jumping into their heads, along with the feeling of "I can do it!" - "is that all it takes? Perseverance and hard work? I can do that!!"

Thank you, Deanie, for the constant reminder to ourselves and our children that a successful, happy life is within our reach when we put for the effort to accomplish our dreams.

Charlene the Star and Hatties Heroes is a story about animal friends who work together to help each other be their very best. Hattie, an adorable chicken who loves wearing pretty bonnets, has the great idea to form a coaching business to help race horses do well and achieve their goals. She and her friends, a dog named Elliot, and a sheep named Woolium, help two horses, Lily and Lucky, learn lessons about good sportsmanship and hard work.

Charlene the Star and Hatties Heroes is a book that would appeal to young horse lovers and animals lovers. The added bonus is that it is a book that teaches good character. It's about helping others, working hard, setting goals, doing your best, and being a gracious winner or loser. All of these are valuable life lessons.

Format: Paperback
This is a sweet and endearing tale about a beautiful horse, named Charlene, who seeks to pursue her dream to be a champion jumper. She befriends other animals, Woolam and Hattie, along the way who help and encourage Charlene on her road to success. Charlene in turns assists her fiends in their adventures.

This author is a champion equestrian who knows horses well enough to speak for them in her stories. Children will learn patience, kindness to others and understanding the differences amongst others. The story demonstrates that with perseverance and determination you can reach your goals.

This is an exceptional story for children of all ages.
