From Publishers Weekly
Filled with quizzes, trivia, top 10 lists, and information about equine behavior, history, sports, and more, this guidebook aims straight at the hearts of horse-loving tweens. Produced in collaboration with model horse manufacturer Breyer (which gets some nice coverage in the collectibles section), the book runs the gamut from how to pick a horse's name to horses in popular culture, the evolution of the species, and horse-related events nationwide. The many sidebars, tidbits, and anecdotes encourage casual browsing--horse lovers will be in heaven. Final art not seen by PW. Ages 7–12. (Oct.)
From School Library Journal
Gr 3-8-The title emphatically sets the tone for this enjoyable volume of facts that read like "Ripley's Believe It or Not." It includes horse jokes; detailed explanations about markings from head to tail; lists of books, movies, and weird horse ailment names; and much more. The tone is lighthearted and conversational with highlighted vignettes of horse lore and intriguing facts accompanied by appealing black-and-white drawings. The chapter headings will have readers quickly checking them out to find out the top 10 horse computer games (off-line), horses on the web, and pony places and horsey happenings, to name a few. Practical advice about working with horses is provided, and there is a brief, inspiring chapter on volunteerism that features young women who have made a difference in the quality of the lives of the animals and people. Numerous websites are identified, and an extensive print bibliography is also included. There is a brief chapter about the famous Breyer models that fans love collecting, which fits in with all of the other information that will enable horse-crazy girls to immerse themselves in the equine world.-Carol Schene, formerly at Taunton Public Schools, MA
