" Gnome King is still my favorite of Ruth's, but this one has plenty of imagination, too. " said.

"One of Thompson's best Oz books, her approach to Oz is very different to Baum's but if you can accept that then several of her books have much to commend them and this is one such. A fairly good plot with the characters having more motivation for their actions than usual. High boy, the giant horse of the title, who moves up and down on telescopic legs (!) is an excellent addition to the Oz canon.
Of John R. Neill's artwork, although variable some of the pictures especially several of the chapter headings are amongst his best work.
" said.

"More of the usual. New kingdoms and characters introduced. Lots of traveling and magic. Many, many puns (a character has an actual "medicine chest"; the title character is a "high horse"). The most unique thing about this story is that it brings back the Witch of the North, whom we have not seen since the very first book. She was the first witch Dorothy met (not Glinda, like in the movie), and for some reason we never saw her again. Her back story is explained. I like the Thompson Oz stories best when they pay attention to the original Oz characters and give them their own adventure and/or a back story." said.
