Author of Timothy the Christmas Mouse & the companion coloring book, Buzzzzzzzz...: What Honeybees Do, Crying Bear, The Christmas Secret, The Princess and the Castle, and The Prince and the Dragon.
This story is a great teaching to young children that anything is possible if they really focus and work hard to achieve their goals. I really enjoyed this book, cute and funny, I really recommend it!
Author of "The Croak 500"
The plot follows Charlie the horse from the moment he's born until he is a fully grown racing horse. The story is told via Charlie's eyes and we share his thoughts, fears, and excitements.
The black and white illustrations are artistic and delicate. They enrich the story.
Any child with love to horses will surely enjoy this delightful story of Charlie the horse.
The story is lovely, the information fascinating, and the values imparted are relevant to readers, young and old. Charlie is a champion racer, but he is also a champion of fundamental values such as work ethic, commitment to task, persistence and tenacity, and integrity and self-respect that are manifested in the effort to excel and be the best one can be. Another set of values that are thematic in the book is evident in the respect, appreciation, and gratitude exhibited by Charlie, who seeks the wisdom and prizes the mentorship of the retired racehorse General Quick. Another winner from Deanie Humphrys-Dunne!
