Entirely based on true events, Maguerite Henry’s Misty of Chincoteague is critically acclaimed and dearly loved for its intimate portrayal of two children’s tender relationship with a magnificent horse. Paul and Maureen Beebe live on Assateague Island with their grandparents who own a pony ranch. One day, the two young children glimpse a herd of wild horses led by the stunning Phantom, who has distinctive white markings on her backside, and has always eluded capture on the annual Pony Penning Day. The two children fall in love instantly with the majestic beauty of the wild animal, who is rumored to be of Spanish descent, and long to own her. In anticipation, the two children prepare for the upcoming Pony Penning Day, completing extra duties to scrape together spare cash to purchase Phantom. On that illustrious day, Paul manages to rein in the wild horse … and her newborn colt! Will the children be able to afford both horses? Misty of Chincoteague is a dynamically engaging story, with lovely black and white drawings by Wesley Dennis, and its authentic edge, lent by the author’s own experiences, has given the timeless tale a poignant touch that has been beloved by generations of readers.
