Ten-year-old Willa Dunlap and her eight-year-old brother Ben are new to Chincoteague Island, but it’s a homecoming for their mother, who grew up there. Willa and Ben’s parents are busy planning the opening of their bed and breakfast, which gives the kids free rein to explore the island. But with so many new people and places to get used to, will Chincoteague ever feel like home?
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
