Nobody could capture the Phantom. She was the wildest mare on Assateague Island. They said she was like the wind, that the white "map" on her shoulders was her mark of freedom. Paul and Maureen Beebe had their hearts set on owning her. They were itching to buy and tame her; and worked hard to earn the money she would cost. But the roundup men had tried to capture her and for two years she had escaped them. Pony Penning Day holds a surprise for everyone, for Paul not only brings in the Phantom, but her newborn colt as well. Can Paul and Maureen possibly earn enough to buy them both? Recommended for ages 8 and up. A 1948 Newbery Honor Book.

Customer Reviews for Misty of Chincoteague - eBook
This book ranks high in my list of all-time favorite stories. The descriptions are completely thrilling; I can retreat to Assateague Island and feel the wind in my hair like Maureen- or see the Spanish Galleon like Paul. Grandma and Grandpa Beebe are real that I would recognize them if I met them on the street! The book wouldn't be complete without the illustrations, which are as much a part of the story as the words. The talents of Marguerite Henry and Wesley Dennis are shown at their best in this classic book.
This is a great book. My granddaughter actually had to have it for her homeschool history cirriculum, She was thrilled because she loves horses & her history study was horses, She loved the book, exciting, read it in one day. Teaches a lesson about responsibility.
