Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This is a good rainy day or backseat amusement to have on hand.” – American Quarter Horse Journal

Children's Literature
Calling all horse lovers! This book resembling a coloring book in size and shape states that it contains 102 brainteasers, word games, jokes and riddles, picture puzzles, matches and logic tests. It really does and what makes it fun for the horsey set is that all of it has to do with horses! Each new activity is announced with a large, bold heading; from crosswords to tangrams, rebuses to outlining facial markings on a horse's face, and more. Great quantities of horse information are presented in amusing ways. All of the answers to the puzzles are easily found in the back of the book, along with a comprehensive glossary (who knew that the part of the bridle that goes over a horse's nose and under his jaw is called a cavesson?). Black, gray and white illustrations add lively tenor to the book. A child who has even a marginal interest in horses would find this book amusing, if not entertaining and educational. Recommended. 2004, Storey Kids, Ages 8 to 12.
