Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Molly 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.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Anna and Molly scrub their light gray horse for a competition, watch helplessly as he rolls in the grass, and then scrub him again. At the show, they greet their friends and get ready to participate in the various classes. Scamper gets a red ribbon in the Trail Class because he is unafraid of the obstacles. However, before the judging for the Costume Class is completed, a sudden rainstorm ruins the horse's paper American flag ensemble. The girls are disappointed, but their mother encourages them to "Look for a rainbow." Her advice pays off when the judge tells the sisters that the streaks of color on Scamper's back look like a set of show ribbons and he is awarded first place. This charming story presents an accurate and appealing look at the ambience of a local horse show. A section at the end provides more information about these events and the different classes in which riders can compete. The eye-pleasing, colored-pencil drawings show appealing young equestrians and their mounts in various shapes and sizes. They accurately portray the emotions and activities of the animals and their owners. An excellent choice for young horse lovers.-Carol Schene, Taunton Public Schools, MA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
The delightful duo that brought readers Appaloosa Zebra (2002) and Runaway Radish (2001) returns with the story of Scamper, a white pony, and two sisters who take him to a local horse show. Throughout the day, as they go in halter class, lead line, pleasure, equitation, and trail classes, they pin their hopes for winning on the costume class, when Scamper himself becomes an American flag. A sudden rainstorm dissolves their hopes-but a kind judge sees Scamper's true colors in the end. Haas is simply terrific at horse stories for readers too young to love the Thoroughbreds series, and Apple's horses-the gentle, skinny pink roan, the cranky palomino, and best of all Scamper-are so real you expect them to trot off the page. A brief afterword explains horse show classes, and a note in the bio says that the story is based on a costume Haas's own Scamper wore in a Bicentennial show. Winning. (Picture book. 4-9)
