A Newbery Honor Book

Rediscover award-winning author Marguerite Henry’s classic story about a wild horse’s gentle colt with this faux leather–bound anniversary edition.

On an island of Chincoteague 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—until a young boy and girl lay eyes on her and decide 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 will forever be a creature of the wild. But her gentle, loyal colt Misty is another story altogether.
