    From the December 2012 online book review "Children's Bookwatch" by 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 titular 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 back-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!"
