Lovely childrens story with a daub of history. Best read with the proper accent!

This is a fictionalized account of the life of young Ima Hogg, the daughter of Governor James Hogg of Texas.

The story is told from a first-person perspective and tells about a crazy race between Ima and her two brothers. Ima is riding her ostrich named Ossy and her brothers are riding their fastest quarter horses.

Ima's father encourages Ima by saying, "Girl, you've got mettle!" She remembers these words as she climbs on Ossy's back and confidently begins her attempt to show her brothers that she indeed has "mettle."

Ima Hogg was a real person and became widely known for supporting the arts, historical preservation and mental health programs. Ima was eight years old when her father was elected governor of Texas in 1890. Their home was filled with famous people and exotic animals, including two ostriches named Jack and Jill.

The author exhibits her marvelous imagination by taking these facts and creating a picture book that children will find fascinating and hilarious. This book will wet children's curiosity about this period in Texas history and the captivating world of ostriches.

I especially like the way Ima's father encourages her and uses the word "mettle"
to describe her. The word "mettle" means courage, valor, vigor and ardor. These are wonderful words for young women to treasure and live by.

The color illustrations add a great deal to the humor in this book. Mr. Dupree did an excellent job capturing the heart of the story.

This book was published over ten years ago but I honestly believe it should have a permanent place in your children's book collection. I hope the author will make this book available in digital format so a new generation of techie children can enjoy Ima and her antics!

Comments made by my five year old grandaughter. Super funny - super good - super weird, girl riding an ostrich. Best Line - Even my toes were mad! Best part - that she kept her promise to her papa and didn't brag.

I was read this book by Ms. McManis herself! She was my old librarian. Love this book

I just think this book is awful, especially since Ms. McManis claims to have done so much historical research.
1. Ima Hogg was a fascinating person who did many good things for many people, and many of those people are still alive and remember her fondly. Her life and good deeds have been very well documented. Therefore, it is RIDICULOUS to make up some untrue story about an ostrich race that did not happen and feed THAT nonsense to children instead of a story about an actual nice person doing actual good things.
2. In the story, Ima and some ostrich win a race against her brother on a pony. How was scientifically impossible feat accomplished? Because Ima has "Texas Mettle!" What sort of horrible message is that?! Children, don't worry about studying for your math test, you'll get an A as long as you have Texas Mettle! Kids, don't worry about going to little league practice and working hard on making your batting better, you'll win the baseball game because you have Texas Mettle!
