A young boy, Keola Maka, watched as all the workers on his father's Hawaiian farm picked their horses. It is his luck that the small gray filly he had admired in the crowded corral is the only one left over. In the end, the little horse, which his father had considered worthless, saves Keola's and his sister's life. An uncomplicated, exceptional tale which moves at a predictable jog, it is decorated with simple black and white drawings. A little more spirit would have been welcome. The fourth is a series by the author which includes the more appealing The Little Horse That Raced A Train (1959, p. 37, J-15).
