Book #11 in the "Julius and Friends" series Horse-crazy Alex Jahn was about to have his prayers answered . . . but not in the way he had hoped for. What Alex wanted was a horse he could be proud of; like a beautiful Black Stallion. What Alex got was this funny-looking jigsaw puzzle of an animal with a big bucket head; long; floppy ears; short; stubby legs; and a scrawny tail! Beanie wasn’t a real horse at all. He was something called a hinny. Was this God’s idea of a joke? Beanie the Horse that Wasn’t a Horse; by Heather Grovet; is a story about differences and learning to love them. This cute tale of a homely little hinny with a big heart will have children aged 6-10 grinning from ear to ear. As they laugh they’ll also learn not to judge by outward appearances and that God knows what’s best for us; even if it doesn’t always seem like it.
