Dexter By A Nose

Rated 4.67/5 based on 3 reviews
Ever since Dexter was born, he has been picked on because he is a half-breed and dreams of becoming a great race horse. Everyone knows that only thoroughbreds can race, but against all odds, a kind trainer sees something in Dexter that he does not see in the other colts and trains him to race. Dexter has the speed, but can he come to terms with who he is and believe in himself enough to win?

Review by: V McKay on Aug. 8, 2011 :
"Dexter by a Nose" is a beautiful story about a mixed-breed colt who dreams of being a racehorse. While almost everyone around him tells him it can't be done, Dexter is determined to prove them wrong. There's a timeless message in this book, about believing in yourself even when the odds are against you. I admit to getting a little choked up near the end, as Dexter begins to long for the simpler days of his youth.

I read stories like this as a child, and I still love them as an adult. I highly recommend this book.

Review by: Paul Swearingen on June 15, 2011 :
"Dexter By a Nose" is a story by a talented author who is a worthy successor to Thornton W. Burgess, who also penned animal stories - not just "talking animal" tales, but ones that included furry characters with real human emotions and problems.

In this story, a horse named Dexter is taunted by others because he is different; he is "mixed" and not a thoroughbred and is even called a "mutt". How he overcomes these differences can serve as a model for young people who may also be "different" and who may be bullied by those who should know better.
