Summary

Each year along the Eastern seacoast, the wild ponies of Assateague Island are driven across a narrow strip of ocean to Chincoteague. There the shaggy, untamed ponies are sold. When young Paul and Maureen Beebe rescue a drowning newborn foal, they take her home to nearby Pony Farm. Now the foal has grown into their free-spirited pony, Misty, and has been the subject of a popular children's book.

One day movie-makers appear on the farm, asking to make a motion picture about Misty and the other wild ponies. Paul and Maureen are beside themselves with excitement - until they learn their beloved pet will have to leave the farm. The children's surprising solution to their problem has touched the hearts of youngsters for generations.

Newbery Award-winning author Marguerite Henry based this beguiling sequel to Misty of Chincoteague on real-life people and animals. Narrator John McDonough's warm-hearted performance whisks readers back to a gentler time and place.

great horse book

another great Henry horse book! my 11 year old animal lover has listened to this book at least 3 times. she circles back through the Misty books about once a year. the reader is a tad dry, but he has read the majority of the Henry books we have listened to. the stories are good enough to make up for the little bit of dryness in performance.
