    One thought on “A Pictorial Life Story of Misty”

    1. 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 l [...]

    2. 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.Misty wound up having a very strange life in some ways but she was always pretty calm about it.

    3. 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.

    4. Fell in love with this story in 3rd grade and I could never find this as an adult. Finally ran across a copy at an antique store - so glad I found it. Loved reading this again as an adult - granted it took me a lot less time to read it now ;)

    5. 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).

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

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