" Notes:for an older girl (11+) who read the misty seriesreal misty/beebe's lives are very different (deaths mentioned) " said.

" This is a must have for horse loving children and adults. Contains many photos of the Beebes, Marguerite, the ponies and many wonderful illustrations. " said.

" Very interesting, with lots of pictures and plenty of well-written text; it's not just a coffee-table book. I think this is a must-have for girls who enjoyed the Misty books (or any girls who like horses, really). " said.

" This was my favorite book as a child. I used to check it out from my elementary school library all the time. Now I have a copy of my own. I believe it is out of print but my husband bought me an old library copy online. " said.

"This is the story behind the story of the Misty of Chincoteague books. It's more interesting and yet much sadder than the fiction books. Many of the main players in this book (including the real Paul Beebe, whom Henry brought to fame) come to sticky ends. Although this book may be found in the children's section of your library, there's a lot of weird and heavy happenings for the really little tykes.

description

Misty wound up having a very strange life in some ways but she was always pretty calm about it. When Henry purchased Misty from the Beebes, she promised (rashly) to send Misty back to them when she was old enough to have foals. You want to shake Henry by the shoulders and say, "WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?"

description

Great photos although Henry apparently did not ask Misty's fans for many photos. So glad Misty lived before the cell phone age. She seems a bit more solid for not being plastered with selfies all over the Internet or having her own Twitter feed.

Misty was a real superstar -- quiet, mysterious and ultimately inexplicable. I'm hoping one day her taxidermied remains get buried because that is just a wee bit grotesque fate for such a sweet part of my childhood -- and probably many other people's childhoods, too.

"What a remarkable treasure of a book. For any true Misty/Marguerite Henry fan, it's the most definitive history you're going to get in book form. Packed end to end with whimsical sketches and stuffed with both black and white color photos on top of that, the imagery vastly enhances the text, but the text could easily stand on its own. I actually appreciate it more as an adult than I did as a child, even though it's aimed at a juvenile audience and does a good job of being written in accessible language without talking down. It fills in some of the gaps - plus, I like hearing more from the author, who just may be my favorite author of all time." said.

" Re-reading an old favorite my parents bought and had signed by the author for me. " said.
