Misty of Chincoteague by Henry - Book 25 of 52 in 52

Misty of Chincoteague by Henry has long been a favorite tale of children.  It has been years since I read the book for myself, but I decided to pull it out again for my oldest son (and my most reluctant reader).  Paul and Maureen Beebe have their hearts set on capturing and taming the legendary Phantom, who has twice eluded the pony roundup gang.  On the big day, it is Paul who finds the Phantom encumbered by a tiny foal and brings them to the rest of the ponies.  Can Paul and Maureen manage to buy both horses?  Can the Phantom ever really be tamed?  A thrilling tale for young children (and their parents) to enjoy again and again.
