Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
An excellent chapter book story of the “Horseland Stables” series. Sarah, a new girl arrives at Horseland in a limo, leading some of the other characters to believe she is a stuck-up snob like two other rich kids at Horseland. Sarah tries to make friends by chatting with some of Horseland’s riders, but her efforts are rebuffed, and before she can make any real headway, she is steered away from the group by the other rich girls at Horseland. Even when Sarah offers a helping hand with chores around the stable, she is given the cold shoulder; however, she gets a chance to really prove that she is down-to-earth, caring, and genuine when she helps calm and care for another rider’s horse that has been injured after an accident during training exercises. This book is a great read. The characters are diverse with White, African-American, and Latin main characters. The story’s theme about not judging someone by their looks and not placing too much importance on material things is a great message. The book even includes some quick fun facts about Sarah’s horse and some care tips for horse tack as well as short background character sketches on each of the characters of the book, including which horse they own and its breed.

First Chapter

Horseland #1: Welcome to Horseland

Chapter One

In the middle of a beautiful countryside sits Horseland, a wonderful sprawling ranch. Riders who come to Horseland find exciting adventures in the surrounding mountains and acres of wild forest, creating great friendships along the way. With a large stable, a tack room, and best of all, an arena for training, Horseland is the greatest place around to board, groom, and show a horse.

No one knows all the ins and outs of Horseland better than Shep, the wise Australian shepherd. A herding dog by breed and instinct, it's Shep's job to keep the horses in line, and make no mistake about it, he rules with an iron paw. Although the horses don't always like it, they obey him because no one wants Shep nipping at their heels! Besides, when Shep tells the horses to do something, he's usually right. Shep simply loves Horseland. After all, it is a place where all the animals can talk to each other—as long as the humans aren't listening!

On this particular sunny day, Shep sits with Teeny and Angora.

"This is one fine place to call home," Shep says.

"Yes, Shep," agrees Teeny, a sweet, young, potbellied pig. "This place is really great." With a pink ribbon on her tail and a curious disposition, Teeny is a playful pig. She runs around neighing and snorting, pretending she's a horse.

"Teeny, no one's ever going to mistake you for a horse," says Angora with a sneer. Angora is a beautiful, fluffy cat, but she fancies herself better than the others. She's the cattiest cat you'll ever meet. "You look exactly like what you are," she tells the pig.

Shep shakes hishead. "You can't always judge someone by what they look like, Angora," he points out. "Take Sarah, for example. Remember when she first came to Horseland?"

Angora looks a little embarrassed. "Hmm . . . yes. Pity about that."

Shep smiles. "It just goes to show you: Don't be quick to judge."

The herding dog is right. He has seen it happen with both horses and humans. . . .
