Description

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.

Professional reviews

"In this recording of the sequel to MISTY OF CHINCOTEAGUE, narrator John McDonough immediately establishes a warm and protective relationship with listeners. His airy and gravelly tones become the voice of experience that represents the novel's deep wisdom--those family-centered values that cushion the character-building episodes in life. McDonough doesn't use a large repertoire of vocal characterizations, but he imbues every syllable with feeling, so that listeners comprehend that he cherishes the story. Capturing the essence of young Paul and Maureen Beebe, McDonough's fluid narration carries listeners into the children's minds and hearts as they deal with the loss of their pony, Misty, and the unexpected gift that helps to heal their sorrow.
