Juarez the burro has an important job—he delivers oats to a stable of thoroughbred horses. But the horses tease him and make fun of him, and make sure he knows that he isn't one of them. But when lightning strikes the stable, it's up to Juarez to save the horses. Can he prove that you don't have to be a champion to be a hero?
With bright and vivid illustrations, Juarez explores the problem of bullying in a clever and kid-friendly way. Children will cheer with Juarez when he risks his life to save the lives of his bullies, and will realize that being kind is more important than being cool.
