Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Just the right mix of action, magic, and familiar themes for young female readers.... Bright rainbow-infused illustrations highlight the magical qualities of these four horses."

Children's Literature

Children's Literature - Leah Hanson
When an offhand remark about who belongs in the kitchen lands young colt Sirocco in the doghouse with his three filly roommates, Kona, Brisa, and Sumatra, Sirocco sets out to prove that he can be an amazing chef even though he has not the slightest idea what he is doing. These four miniature flying horses are known as the Wind Dancers and usually they enjoy having magical adventures together. However, Sirocco's idea that he can get out of his share of the kitchen chores because he is a boy sets up a conflict between the four friends. A boy versus girls cooking challenge is issued, and Sirocco sets off to find exotic ingredients to help him win. Only after getting lost in the forest, nearly eating poisonous mushrooms, and eavesdropping on the fun his friends are having without him does Sirocco learn the most important lesson of all—the best ingredient for any recipe is friendship. This middle reader series has just the right mix of action, magic, and familiar themes for young female readers. Although the story centers on a male character, the female characters show both the ability to stand up for themselves and the compassion to accept their friend's imperfections. Bright rainbow-infused illustrations highlight the magical qualities of these four horses. Reviewer: Leah Hanson
