Little Horse

There are few early chapter books with a fast-paced plot and real suspense. Little Horse by Betsy Byars, published ten years ago, keeps the pages turning. Falling into a stream and over a waterfall, Little Horse is transported to a world so different from his mother, filled with large animals and fierce surroundings. He survives by wit and quick actions. And no, he doesn’t end up back home, as in so many children’s books, but he does end up in a good and safe place.
