In this sequel to Misty of Chincoteague, Paul and Maureen are faced with a hard decision. A movie company wants to buy Misty. Maureen and Paul finally decide to sell Misty, so city children can see a wild pony. Misty’s going leaves an empty gap in their lives, which is eased by the orphan colt Sea Star. When Sea Star won’t eat, they have to find a way to make a mare, who has lost its colt, adopt little Sea Star.
A very nice story. Although, I was surprised that Sea Star only has the last half of the book and a very short half at that. It was fun reading this book again. I hadn’t read it for quite a while and I had forgotten a lot. Sea Star is one of Marguerite Henry’s heartwarming stories.
