another fond memory Jan 2, 2014
I was born horse-crazy; Misty of Chincoteague is one of my childhood favorites. I purchased this copy for my great-grandchild Michaela, and gave it to her Christmas.
Marguerite Henry was a gifted author, very good at bring as child into her chosen world. just looking at the copy of the book seemed to take me back to the Outer Banks of Carolina. I loved the book as a child; I'm looking forward to seeing what Michaela's reaction to the story will be some 70 years later.
the copy of the book I purchased was clean, undamaged and bright...looked new. it's very satisfying to be able to find an old book friend to recommend for my grandchildren and great-grandchildren at a price I can afford to pay. Thanks, Alibris!
