Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara Disckind
While a sequel to Beware the Mare, readers can easily understand the story and its characters without referring to the previous book. Using short chapters, we meet Lily and her horse Beware during the junior horse show. Will best friend Mandy and her horse Shane win more ribbons? Are Lily and Beware really good? The book's themes of self-doubt, anticipation, competitiveness, jealousy, and friendship will interest even those who have not gotten the "horse-crazy" bug (and could even prompt some useful discussions with parents and friends). Horse lovers will find information on horse grooming, show competition, and riding.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-A horse show is intrinsically exciting for any child who has ever experienced one, and for Lily, who is showing her mare, Beware, for the first time, the day is filled with emotion. Her family is there to root her on; her best friend is showing, as well. All of the ups and downs of the competition are here. Lily is frustrated in an early class when an excellent performance and a competitor's missteps are overlooked by the judge. In a jumping class, her perfect round is too slow to win the blue. She finally does place first in barrel racing, but her real triumph is learning to accept whatever the day brings and maintaining her friendship with Mandy despite the sometimes heated competition between them. Although the junior horse-show scenario is almost a clich in the horse-story genre, Haas handles it well-it seems neither predictable nor hackneyed. The characterization is good, the plot is involving, and the writing is smooth. Although this is a sequel to Beware the Mare (Greenwillow, 1993), the book stands on its own. A satisfying story that should please young readers and riders.-Louise L. Sherman, Anna C. Scott School, Leonia, NJ
