Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 2-4

Bursting with kid appeal, these titles chronicle the use of horses in fighting fires and filming. Pages disseminate information with a paragraph of easy-to-read text; generous, clear photographs; and fun facts, highlighted by borders and a horse icon. Fetty offers a history lesson in the advancement of techniques for fighting fires, focusing mainly on the second half of the 1800s, when horsepower was used. Readers are enlightened about the daily life of a fire horse, including training, dangers, and retirement. The second book introduces celebrities such as Silver, Trigger, and Mister Ed and provides unusual facts about the challenges of making movies with large, four-legged creatures. Readers also learn about the commitment of the American Humane Society to ensure the safety of all equine actors. These books add a unique twist to a subject already popular.-Robin Henry, Griffin Middle School, Frisco, TX
