Nobody could capture the Phantom. She was the wildest mare on Assateague Island. They said she was like the wind, that the white "map" on her shoulders was her mark of freedom.

Paul and Maureen Beebe had their hearts set on owning her. They were itching to buy and tame her, and worked hard to earn the money that she would cost. But the roundup men had tried to capture her and for two years she had escaped them....

Pony Penning Day holds a surprise for everyone, for Paul not only brings in the Phantom, but her newborn colt as well. Can Paul and Maureen possibly earn enough to buy them both?

Review:

On an island 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--that is, until a young boy and girl lay eyes on her and determine that 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 would forever be a creature of the wild. But her gentle, loyal colt Misty is another story altogether.

Marguerite Henry's Newbery Honor Book has captivated generations of boys and girls both with its thrilling descriptions of true incidents from the tiny island of Chincoteague, and its realistic yet wonderfully magical atmosphere. This story of an animal brought into captivity poignantly reveals the powerful opposing forces of humans and nature. Wesley Dennis's pen-and-ink ponies are masterfully depicted with rippling muscles, shaggy coats, and free spirits. (Ages 9 to 12) --Emilie Coulter

From the Back Cover:

The Misty of Chincoteague Foundation 1999 Calendar celebrates Marguerite Henry's Newbery Award-winning classic, Misty of Chincoteague. The calendar features fourteen exciting color photographs of the famous Chincoteague ponies, Wesley Dennis' o riginal illustrations, and archival pictures of the ponies and people who have made Misty a legend. Full captions, and quotes from Marguerite Henry's books, tell the story behind America's best-loved pony family. The Misty of Chincoteague Foundation is a nonprofit corporation established in 1990 by the late Marguerite Henry. The goal is to purchase, and thereby preserve, as much as possible of the remaining Beebe Ranch on Chincoteague Island, and to establish an e ducational museum to protect letters, photographs, and other memorabilia for the enjoyment of future generations. A portion of the proceeds from calendar sales will be used to support the Misty of Chincoteague Foundation, Inc. and its goal of preserving Misty's heritage.
