Sea Star: Orphan of Chincoteague

Our rating: ***½

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.

  1. What is the sequel to this book?
    Is it “Born To Trot”?

  2. Born to Trot is actually a stand alone book. Sea Star does have a sequel, though, called Stormy, Misty’s Foal. I have seen another title listed in the “Misty” series between these two, but I have never found the book anywhere.
