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. Download and start listening now!

    " there were two diffrent plots here. i am not sure why the two diffrent plots needed to be in the same peice. the charecters were hummeous but i find that there was more of a focus on the grandparents charectezatoin than the two cilren, maureen and paul. "

    " An okay story...I suppose it was probably a big hit with all children who love horses. Honestly I don't remember much about it; I read it when I was about twelve, but nothing from it sticks out in my mind as a book that I really enjoyed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jossalyn | 1/13/2014

    " These marvelous books wouldnt be the same without the collaboration of the incomparable illustrations by Wesley Dennis. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mr. Graham | 1/4/2014

    " Sea Star was a feel-good children's story. It was mildly entertaining, and had some cool wisdom from the grandparents, along with some valuable horse stuff. However, the absence of a strong central plot made me glad this book was over. Setting was cool. Character development was not great. Plot development was poor. "

    " I liked it because Maureen and Paul saved Sea Star. He was alone at the beach and they rounded him up; Paul told them how. They got him into the beach and then Paul and Maureen swam him through, just like the round-up. "

    " I guess I went through a horse phase. I think I even took horse-back riding lessons, but it was more fun in my head than in real life. A good read, though the 1920 setting is a bit hard to relate to. "
