Children's LiteratureMolly and Anna ride to glory—or at least to a colorful finish—in Scamper and the Horse Show. The sisters are sure that their snowy pony will garner a blue for best costume when he trots out draped in crepe-paper ribbons of red, white and blue. When a summer shower destroys Scamper's fancy trimmings, the judge helps the girls see that, with a little imagination, their horse can shine in a whole different way. Author Jessie Haas conveys well the affectionate bond between horse and young rider and captures the drama of that very first horse show. Margot Apple infuses her people and horses with the same expressive charm she brought to her popular "Sheep" books, including Sheep in a Jeep. 2004, HarperCollins, and Ages 4 to 8.
