Evocative of a simpler time, of childhood dreams and possibilities, and of the excitement and freedom of horses, Misty of Chincoteague is a Newbery Award Winner, recently rereleased in a 60th anniversary edition. I didn’t read this book as a child, though I longed to after buying the sequel, Stormy, Misty’s Foal, in elementary school. It was the first book I bought from the traveling library—together with another children’s novel called the Day the Roof fell In. Stormy stole my heart and Misty has just stolen it again! The illustrations are cool line-drawings filled with emotion and action. The history of wild horses on an island is intriguingly and simply told. And the determination of two young children to own and tame a creature of their own, instead of simply training to sell to others, has a sense of genuine innocence together a pleasing push toward deeper feelings. These children work for what they love, respect what they are given, and recognize there’s more to life than what their desires would offer. Simple, yet pleasingly deep, Misty is a tale for all ages with wise lessons for adults too. Disclosure: A dear friend learned how I’d loved Stormy and bought me this book as a gift. Thank you!
