This sequel to the very popular book The Black Stallion is not remarkable in style, plot or characterization, yet [The Black Stallion Returns] has pace and verve and holds the reader's interest throughout. Central theme, the love of Alec for his horse, has all the elements of sure-fire popularity with young people twelve and over.
