The Newest Time Spies Book!
It won't be officially released until November 13, but I want to tell you about the newest Time Spies book now! It's called Horses in the Wind. The story is all about the historic match race between two of the greatest Thoroughbred racehorses ever--Seabiscuit and War Admiral. The time was 1938 and America had been in the Great Depression for years. They needed a hero and they got one. A horse!
The race was only between Seabiscuit, the horse from California, and War Admiral, the son of the greatest racehorse ever, Man O'War. It was held at Pimlico in Baltimore, Maryland. People all over America were stirred up over this race! Which one was the fastest horse? The only way to find out was to race them together. Find out what happens in the book!
I'll write more about horse racing in later entries. But look at this cover! I'm smack dab in the middle! Way cool!
Those horses may have been fast, but the fastest animal on the planet is a cat. The cheetah. So there.
You're just jealous, Winchester, because you're never on the cover of the Time Spies books!
