Book #31: 50 Book Challenge 2012

Misty of Chincoteague - Marguerite Henry

My grandmother gave me this book when I was five years old, but going through my books recently, I realized I had never read it!  I was never into horse stories.  But what a shame that I grew up so close to Chincoteague and Assateague and the ponies, and had never read this.

It was a cute story.  But it seemed to be more about Misty's mother, Phantom, than her foal.  MIsty wasn't even mentioned all that much.

Also, I was surprised with all the hillbillyspeak.  I think it was a little overdone to the point where Grandpa and Grandma began to sound stupid instead of familiar and endearing.  Still, I liked it and I'm glad it's still on my bookshelf.
