Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—Einstein, the smallest horse ever born, has a dilemma. He is too tiny to be with the other horses except for his mother. Various creatures find their way to his pasture, but none of them fills his need for a real playmate. The kittens hiss at him, the ducks ignore him, and the tortoise is boring. Then he meets Lilly, a boxer that likes to do the same things that he does, from running around in the field to enjoying a roll in the grass. This simple story is effectively told through a brief, lively text and captivating full-color photographs. The images of Einstein are irresistible. Whether in the stall with his mother or cavorting with Lilly, this mini miniature horse with hooves the size of quarters is a charmer. Einstein's owners are authors of this whimsical friendship story. Young animal lovers will enjoy the stallion's thoughts as they peruse the pictures again and again.—Carol Schene, formerly at Taunton Public Schools, MA
