Grade 3-5?A horse show is intrinsically exciting for any child who has ever experienced one, and for Lily, who is showing her mare, Beware, for the first time, the day is filled with emotion. Her family is there to root her on; her best friend is showing, as well. All of the ups and downs of the competition are here. Lily is frustrated in an early class when an excellent performance and a competitor's missteps are overlooked by the judge. In a jumping class, her perfect round is too slow to win the blue. She finally does place first in barrel racing, but her real triumph is learning to accept whatever the day brings and maintaining her friendship with Mandy despite the sometimes heated competition between them. Although the junior horse-show scenario is almost a cliche in the horse-story genre, Haas handles it well?it seems neither predictable nor hackneyed. The characterization is good, the plot is involving, and the writing is smooth. Although this is a sequel to Beware the Mare (Greenwillow, 1993), the book stands on its own. A satisfying story that should please young readers and riders.?Louise L. Sherman, Anna C. Scott School, Leonia, NJ

Gr. 2^-4. In this entertaining chapter-book sequel to Beware the Mare (1993), Lily and her young mare Beware are competing in their first horse show. It's exciting to be competing for real ribbons, surprisingly confusing and upsetting to be competing against a best friend, and exhilarating to come away with blue ribbons. Vivid descriptions of the events will make readers feel as if they had a ringside seat at the show, and there's an amazing amount of information about preshow preparations and scoring events. Horse lovers will relish the story and hope for more adventures featuring Lily and her spunky mare. Chris Sherman
