5-star review by Reader's Favorites
"Deanie Humphrys-Dunne's children's early chapter book, Charlene the Star and Hattie's Heroes, is another joyful romp in the paddock type of story from the Charlene series. Like the other stories,this one provides young readers with lots of horse sense and excitement, as well as teaching them simple things about manners and respect. The animal characters are fun and enjoyable as they seek ways to help each other. The plot follows a plan to start a business that helps other animals overcome their fears and become the best they can be, while still sharing good manners and respect. This is a great story for horse and animal lovers." ~ Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers'Favorite (5 stars)

Cohen
"This middle-grade chapter book focuses on the life of Charlene the Star, a jumping horse, and her animal friends. Charlene and two fellow horses, Ann and Blossom, have an interesting assortment of friends that come to live near the stables. Elliott is a talented dog, Hattie, a chicken who likes to wear fashionable bonnets, Wooliam, a tender-hearted sheep, Patsy the Pig, and two new horses, Tiger Lily and Lucky Charming....Highly recommended for middle-grade readers, especially those in third to fifth grade."~ from review by Barbara A.
