Gr 1-3-This easy-to-read title provides an interesting look at the famous racehorse. Readers who were intrigued by the exploits of Seabiscuit will discover that Man O' War was his grandfather. A big, strong horse, he had a mind of his own. He gave the stable boys a hard time saddling him and even began one race facing the wrong direction because he fidgeted so much. Named the Greatest Horse of the Century in 1999, he lived a long life after his retirement from racing. The information about the horse's life flows easily and the realistic, soft-toned illustrations clearly depict various moments in his life, such as getting a carrot-candle birthday cake. A pleasant addition to nonfiction collections.-Carol Schene, Taunton Public Schools, MA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
