Misty of Chincoteague Author:Marguerite Henry Paul and Maureen have their hearts set on owning and taming the wild mare Phantom and her newborn colt. But can a wild mare with a white mark of freedom be tamed? Read by actress Daisy Eagan, the thrilling adventures in this Newbery Honor book are brought to life for a new generation of young listeners.
One of my most favorite books from my childhood, a beautifully written story with a bit of a coming of age theme. I read this book numerous times as a child and was thrilled to finally see the islands of Chincoteague and Assateague in real life during a family vacation in later years. A true classic.
