Pony Swim (Marguerite Henry's Misty Inn)
The Dunlaps prepare to host a respected travel writer during the busiest time of the year in this sixth book of a chapter book series inspired by Marguerite Henry’s Misty of Chincoteague.
It’s the week of the annual pony swim and Willa and Ben are excited! Misty Inn is fully booked for the days leading up to the swim and the auction of the foals, which takes place the following day. As if the island’s biggest event isn’t exciting enough, the Dunlaps get news that a travel critic/writer will be staying at the inn during that week. The kids are determined to show the special guest just how nice Misty Inn can be, but will they be able to prove it when they don’t even know who the critic is?
A series that any young horse lover would enjoy, the Misty’s Inn Series is about two young horse enthusiasts who have recently moved to Chincoteague, Virginia. Willa and Ben, a brother and sister duo, have just left Chicago to move near their grandparents – where their parents are launching a new family bed-and-breakfast inn. Despite Ben and Willa’s disappointment of moving away from their home and friends, they are excited to be able to be near their grandparents…and possibly see wild horses on the beach of Chincoteague. Willa had heard of stories and legends about the wild horses since she was a little girl. If only she would have the opportunity to see one for herself.
Willa and Ben’s grandparents are the owners of a horse ranch. When a new horse named Starbuck is unexpectedly dropped off at the ranch, it instantly has the full interest of both Willa and Ben. This series covers many exciting experiences and adventures that the two young siblings encounter at their parent’s new inn. Each book has about 125 pages, pb. ~ Brianna
