Little Horse

Betsy Byars; Illustrated by David McPhail

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

Can Little Horse find his place in the big world?

After accidentally falling into a stream, Little Horse fights the swift current that carries him farther and farther from the valley where he was born.

When he finally manages to scramble ashore, a giant bird swoops down on him. Little Horse runs for cover in a forest of flowers only to have a giant paw pin him to the ground. But a hand gently lifts him up and tucks him inside a warm cave-just like the cave he used to share with his mother.

This tender, fast-moving tale, written by master storyteller Betsy Byars and enhanced by David McPhail's beguiling illustrations, is a true cliff-hanger.
