This is the 4th book in the "Winnie The Horse Gentler" series by Dandi Daley Mackall. Unlike previous books, this one actually does include a mystery, and the horse Winnie is helping doesn't board in her barn. This time the circus is in town, and she's needing to help a circus horse who is jumpy, frightened, and even disobeying commands he's been taught. But the Russian circus is going to be there to scout for new talent. . . can she figure out what is going on in time? Sub-plots of the book are Catman's Grandfather "Colonel Coolidge" is in town. He's gearing up for a reunion of army men -- but where are they? Even more important is Winnie's mother's birthday is approaching. Since her mother died, Winnie wants to put on a horse show for the family -- celebrate the birthday like they always did when her mother was alive which meant a movie in the morning, spaghetti for lunch, and a horse show in the afternoon. Winnie wants to teach Nickers to bow because her mother always had her horses bow, but will Nickers learn in time? And besides that, with Winnie's dad headed to the Invention Convention in Chicago, he's not going to be home on her mom's birthday. Lizzie has a writing competition that day, so that leaves -- Winnie -- and Winnie alone to remember her mother's birthday -- or so she thinks!

Winnie joins the circus!   Winnie is asked to be a greeter for the circus in town run by Catman's  Grandfather.  It also turns out there is a circus horse that needs Winnie's help.  The horse has forgotten  all the commands that it has been taught and a new job is on the line for the performer.  The horse isn't the  only  one forgetting things-Sat. is Winnie's Mom's birthday and the rest of the family has left town even though Winnie wanted to carry on the birthday horse show tradition. This was a good book for kids.

On a ledge to the left of the waterfall, a cat could easily jump up and into the big cave opening. Inside, sunlight dappled the sandy ground that was lined with mossy nests. The large den was kept warm through the night from the rocks that absorbed the daytime sun. Up above, bats slept during the day, an easy meal or two until they learned to keep their distance. -Warriors Den-

This book was okay, but not as good as the others I have read in the series. I found the other books to have strong and meaningful themes. This one just fell a bit flat. Still an interesting read though.

The 4th book in the Winnie the Horse Gentler series, Midnight Mystery, is a great book. Horse people and non- horse people will fall in love with this book.
