Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6-In this third book in the series, Miranda Stevens, 11, having bonded with the injured stallion she nursed back to health, is determined to train and someday own this horse she loves. Through a series of episodic events, she proves her talent in working with Starlight, a thoroughbred training for the racetrack, but must struggle against the prejudice of adults who don't believe in her abilities. Libraries that see heavy circulation of the "Saddle Club" series (Bantam) or that have a following for the previous books will want to consider this one; others can safely skip it.

Format: Paperback
This is the third book in a series about young Miranda Stevens and Starlight. Starlight is a two or three year old black stallion that has recently healed from serious leg wounds. Miranda wants nothing more than to own Starlight. It would ensure that the current owner, Mr. Taylor, would not someday part her from the beloved horse. Unfortunately, Starlight is so well recovered that Mr. Taylor is sure the horse can race. He has Adam, his trainer, begin training Starlight. However, Adam is mean to the horse so Starlight keeps bucking him off. Adam believes Miranda is spoiling the horse and keeps taking his anger out, verbally, on her. He refuses to believe Miranda could tell him anything that would aid him in training Starlight.
Unknown to most, Miranda had been working with Starlight already. The horse was fully trained and ready to race. But Starlight's heart belonged to young Miranda, who seems to have a natural talent when it comes to handling horses.
***** Very little is mentioned about school or classmates in the book this time. The author focuses more on dealing with the problems of racism. Racism is a very sensitive issue in the world today and Janet Muirhead Hill does an excellent job in showing that skin color does not matter. In fact, the author the shows how petty it makes many adults seem. As in the previous book, Adam and Miranda continue to clash. I believe the author is foreshadowing the next book with this situation.
The book is perfect for anyone age eight or up who loves horses. It is clearly written out in a way young readers can easily understand and relate to. This is one exceptional series! *****

Format: Paperback
After reading the first two books in the Starlight series to my young children("Miranda and Starlight" and "Starlight's Courage," respectively), I was hooked on this series of horse adventures for middle-grade children, for my own enjoyment! "Starlight, Star Bright" is an endearing addition filled with adventure in a Rocky Mountain setting. Miranda is a young heroine whom has plenty of courage to handle the most difficult of real-life situations. We laughed and cried at her misadventures. All I can tell you is that the ending is one that you will love! It is difficult to find books for my children that teach them values, as well as make them ask for more as they begin to read- this series has both elements. We will definately be anxiously awaiting the previews of each new title that becomes available.
