About this title

Synopsis:

FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Chronicles the life of the famous race horse, from not being wanted due to his small size, to becoming the fastest and most beloved horse of his time. A Level 2 All Aboard Reader.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-This straightforward account focuses on the racehorse's rise from "a big disappointment" in spite of his excellent bloodlines to a great champion and symbol of hope during the Great Depression. The authors cover the basics, describing how Seabiscuit's looks left a lot to be desired, his odd sleeping habits, and the fact that he was difficult to handle until he acquired some unusual companions, including a spider monkey. They also detail the horse's attempts to win the Santa Anita Handicap in California, a victory that alluded him for years. Only Seabiscuit's trainer, Tom Smith, is mentioned by name. The lively text will keep readers' interest as they follow this amazing animal's life. The soft-toned realistic illustrations and occasional black-and-white photographs nicely complement the story. This easy-reader would make an excellent companion to Kat Shehata's Seabiscuit vs. War Admiral (Angel Bea, 2003); both books provide solid information for short reports.-Carol Schene, Taunton Public Schools, MA
