Jessie Haas (Author), Margo Apple (Illustrator). In Apple's colored-pencil drawings, Scamper and the show's other four-legged entrants rival their riders for individual expression and personality, and young horse lovers will get not only a satisfying tale with a nicely set-up surprise at the end but also a good dose of information about how the various competitions, or "classes," in a horse show work. Haas presents more information about horse shows in an afterword.

Haas is simply terrific at horse stories for readers too young to love the Thoroughbreds series, and Apple's horses-the gentle, skinny pink roan, the cranky palomino, and best of all Scamper-are so real you expect them to trot off the page. The delightful duo that brought readers Appaloosa Zebra (2002) and Runaway Radish (2001) returns with the story of Scamper, a white pony, and two sisters who take him to a local horse show. Throughout the day, as they go in halter class, lead line, pleasure, equitation, and trail classes, they pin their hopes for winning on the costume class, when Scamper himself becomes an American flag.

Jessie Haas has written over 35 books for children and adults, many about horses-a lifelong passion.

Molly and Anna are going to the horse show. Will they win ribbons? They may win one if their costume is clever enough.They may win more if they're good enough riders. But everything depends on whether Scamper behaves himself.

Scamper knows what he likes. Scamper does what he wants. And you never know just what Scamper is going to do. . . .

My daughter (6) and I both LOVE this book. From her perspective, she can relate to the main characters and enjoy living through them in their horse show. I love it because it is WAY more down to earth of a story. Not high faluteing (sp?) horse show here. It is local, it comes w/ high points and low points, and the characters handle both w/ sportsmanship and maturity. It is a great example of how to participate in any sport. They do show that you don't ALWAYS win. And that's ok, its the experience that counts. And when things don't go as planned, they are able to grapple w/ their disappointments, and turn it around for something good. WOnderful, wonderful book, and highly recommended.

This book has it all - horses, little girls, a horse show, great parenting modeled (except there's no dad in the picture - ?), simplicity, good text, lovely illustrations that go so perfectly with the tone of the text....I could go on and on, but instead I'll just encourage you buy one for yourself and read it (again and again and again!) to your little ones. This is a favorite of my 3.5yr old, horse-crazy daughter. Enjoy!
