I pretty much liked this book. It may not have been five stars, but it was definably a 4! It is not an adventure story or full of action, but its not slow paced and boring. It is just a good book. There is no way to explain it. Its just really good. but, it is still a classic.

I really enjoyed this book with my classroom and my daughter. It is a great story of Chincoteague island and the mixture of fiction and non-fiction is very inviting. The horses story will make you want to know what is going to happen. Will these horses make it and how. If you know of a girl who loves horses this is a good book for her. I tried to read this story to my daughter when she was six years old, it was too heavy for her then. I recently read it with my nine year old daughter and it went over much better. It takes some concentration and time to stop and discuss but you will like it.

This book is mostly for horses lovers. It is a marvelous book about a brother and sister that live in Chincoteague, Virgina. They live with there grandparents on a farm. On the farm their Grandpa raises colts then sells them. Every year in Chincoteague there is a day called Pony Pending day. Pony Pending day is when the round up the ponies on Assuteague island. One day the boy and girl were on Assuteague island looking at the ponies when they see a very special horse named the Phatom. The Phantom has never been rounded up before because nobody could catch her. The moment they saw the Phantom they both knew they wanted her! Do they ever get her? Read the story to find out!

This is a wonderful book. I grew up around Chincoteague and Assateague Islands. In fact my fathers side of the family was from there and the book is very accurate in detail and description. The story is one that is timeless and has a message for everyone regardless of age or background. It will take you back to a time when life was much simpler and people had values and used them. I would also recommend the movie. The scenery in the movie is exactly the same today as it was then over 50 years ago. You can't go wrong with either the book or the movie but would suggest the book first. Enjoy!!!!!!

This is an adventurous and heartfelt book that any little horse or pony lover will adore! Based on a true story, the book follows the adventures of Paul and Maureen Beebe, and their Chincoteague Pony, Misty. Great for kids of any age! This is truly a classic!

This was a very good book. This book is about 2 children who want to buy a horse. They had many difficulties on their way but they never gave up and they got what they wanted in the end. I think you should read this book because it was very well written and very exciting to read and to find out what was going to happen next. (This is a true story!!!!)

I love all Marguerite Henhy's books she is the best author of all time, but Mitsy is the best. The story of a chincoteague pony and the two kids that love her.

We bought this for our niece. It was a story with mystery about horses which is a favorite subject for her activities and her love of reading.

Misty of Chincoteague is a great book but the way they talk with the accent I couldn't really understand it. otherwise it is a perfect book for horse lovers. In the end I felt bad for Maureen when she couldn't race but I got over it.

This book was vividly described so that you felt like you were on the island of Chincoteague. Sometimes I forgot that I was looking at this book while daydreaming about Chincoteague how it was described in this book. Also, it has a good ending. READ THIS!

I love this book. I read it before as a paperback, but somehow it got lost so I didn't think much of it. Infact, l completly forgot about it. So when l looked up King of the Wind, it showed up by the same author. I was so surprised and in this Breyer horse mag, l saw Misty and Stormy as Breyer horses. I love Misty and her Phantom spirit.

My mother and I were just staying in Greenbackville (Chincoteague) Virginia with my aunt and uncle and I got this book when we went to Chincoteague to see the wild ponies. I have not read the book yet but it looks really beautiful.
