Homer the Racehorse
(Round Rock, Texas)
From Midwest Book Review:
Ideal for readers ages 8-12, Homer the Racehorse is a short novel about the trials and tribulations of a thoroughbred racehorse determined to become a champion. Told from the racehorse's point of view, Homer the Racehorse chronicles an equine life from playing as a foal, to the grueling training demanded of champions, to the thrill of a neck-and-neck race on the track!
A handful of black-and-white illustrations intersperse this enjoyable read, which draws heavily on the history of championship horse racing itself. Highly recommended, especially for young horse enthusiasts!
