About this title


The story of a young girl who moves from Ohio to Michigan leaving her best friend behind. She befriends the retired racehorse that lives next door and hears the horse person's legend that all animals talk at midnight on Christmas Eve. When he suffers a life threatening illness, she visits the barn on Christmas Eve hoping the legend is true and she can help Whoop.

From the Publisher:

The author's description captures the antics of horses and the anguish a child feels when forced to move. This first children's book by the author sold more than 2,200 copies within four weeks of its publication Nov. 22, 1995. The author is a widely respected, award-winning journalist. The illustrator was an award winning fashion illustrator and beloved cartoonist for the Detroit Free Press for 43 years. The illustrations are beautiful, surprisingly accurate and even humorous with full color drawings of the horse slurping water from a hose and rolling in the dirt.
