KIRKUS REVIEW

Another good story of children and horses, which will appeal to all ten and twelve year olds who own, or would like to own, their own horses. There's a vacation given fresh zest by the discovery of an island that the children feel is their own; their is a new neighbor, whom the Harwickes eventually succumb to; and there's increasing interest in Indian relics and a ""dig"" actually on their beloved island. Paul Brown as illustrator gives the book importance to all who know his horse drawings.
