I read this book when I was young and loved it. I'm going to Pony Penning Day this year, so I decided to re-read it. It's just as good as I remember (although of course it is simpler than I remember). What a great children's book. It's a magical story with a great moral.

A v good read for girl or boy... great book for horse fans!

A little bit of history of the Eastern Shore and lots of action w/ a family and the Mother horse and her colt

Two children, Paul and Maureen, work together to bring the wild pony, Phantom, and her newborn foal, Misty, to Chincoteague Island


Phantom, a rarely seen mare that eludes all efforts to capture her--that is, until a young boy and girl lay eyes on her and determine that they can't live without her. The frenzied roundup that follows on the next "Pony Penning Day" does indeed bring Phantom into their lives, in a way they never would have suspected. Phantom would forever be a creature of the wild. But her gentle, loyal colt Misty is another story altogether.

Marguerite Henry's Newbery Honor Book has captivated generations of boys and girls both with its thrilling descriptions of true incidents from the tiny island of Chincoteague, and its realistic yet wonderfully magical atmosphere. This story of an animal brought into captivity poignantly reveals the powerful opposing forces of humans and nature.

Wonderful, wonderful book! My 4th graders loved Paul and Maureen Beebee and fell in love with both Misty and the Phantom!

On an island off the coasts of Virginia and Maryland lives a centuries-old band of wild ponies. Among them is the most mysterious of all, Phantom, a rarely seen mare that eludes all efforts to capture her--that is, until a young boy and girl lay eyes on her and determine that they can't live without her. The frenzied roundup that follows on the next "Pony Penning Day" does indeed bring Phantom into their lives, in a way they never would have suspected. Phantom would forever be a creature of the wild. But her gentle, loyal colt Misty is another story altogether.

For years Paul and Maureen have raised ponies on their grandfather's farm, only to watch them be sold to some stranger as soon as they're grown. They can't take it anymore; they need a horse of their own!
So when Paul gets a chance to herd wild horses an Assateague Island with the other villagers on Pony Penning Day, he jumps at it. Paul has only one horse in mind, though, the wildest horse on the island, the Phantom.
People say that he's crazy, that the Phantom is too wild to be caught. Yet, when Paul gets to the island, he rides straight into Phantom! But what's that right next to her? It's a silvery-gray colt. The mighty Phantom has a son- Misty! But can Paul hold on to both of them?

This is really a child's book but since I had visited Chincoteague I wanted to read the story. It is a nice story and would recommend for children, especially horse lovers.
