    Marguerite Henry Karen Haus Grandpre
    Marguerite Henry April 13, 1902 November 26, 1997 was an American writer The author of fifty nine books based on true stories of horses and other animals, her work has captivated entire generations of children and young adults and won several Newbery Awards and Honors Among the famous of her works was Misty of Chincoteague, which was the basis for the 1961 movie Misty, and several sequel books It is exciting to me that no matter how much machinery replaces the horse, the work it can do is still measured in horsepower even in the new age And although a riding horse often weighs half a ton and a big drafter a full ton, either can be led about by a piece of string if he has been wisely trained This to me is a constant source of wonder and challenge This quote was from an article about Henry published in the Washington Post on November 28, 1997, in response to a query about her drive to write about horses.Marguerite Henry inspired children all over the world with her love of animals, especially horses Author of over fifty children s stories, including the Misty of Chincoteague series, Henry s love of animals started during her childhood Unfortunately, Henry was stricken with a rheumatic fever at the age of six, which kept her bedridden until the age of twelve Born to Louis and Anna Breithaupt, the youngest of the five children, Henry was a native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin Because of her illness, Henry wasn t allowed to go to school with other children because of her weak state and the fear of spreading the illness to others While she was confined indoors, she discovered the joy of reading Soon afterwards, she also discovered a love for writing when her father, a publisher, presented her with a writing desk for Christmas On the top of stacks of colored paper her father wrote, Dear Last of the Mohicans Not a penny for your thoughts, but a tablet Merry Christmas Pappa Louis XXXX Henry s first published work came at the age of eleven, a short story about a collie and a group of children, which she sold to a magazine for 12 Henry always wrote about animals, such as dogs, cats, birds, foxes, and even mules, but chiefly her stories focused on horses.In 1923, she married Sidney Crocker Henry During their sixty four years of marriage they didn t have children, but instead had many pets that inspired some of Marguerite s stories They lived in Wayne, Illinois.In 1947, she published Misty of Chincoteague and it was an instant success Later, this book as well as Justin Morgan had a Horse and Brighty of the Grand Canyon were made into movies.She finished her last book, Brown Sunshine of Sawdust Valley, just before her death on November 26, 1997 at the age of 95.

    As much as I have always adored the first three books of Marguerite Henry s Misty of Chincoteague series Misty of Chincoteague, Sea Star and Stormy, Misty s Foal , this fourth installment, which was written in the 1990s, and thus many decades later, really has none of the magic of the first three novels and actually leaves me mostly rather majorly annoyed And first and foremost, the reason for my annoyance at least for and to me is the unfortunate fact and truth that the author s, that Marguerit [...]

    I remember this book being about Misty Spoiler alert it isn t It s about a family that hopes to keep the Misty of Chincoteague legacy alive, but instead they just try to recreate the fame of Twilight s ancestor by forcing the horse to compete in tons of absurd contests, hoping she ll be famous and have a legacy.I didn t care for the characters or the horse they all seemed shallow and uninteresting I also wished the book had kept with the Chincoteague trend and setting, and maybe kept us with the [...]

    First of all, I didn t like this one s lack of the Beebe s and the lack of explantion as to what happened to them We heard Grandpa Beebe had died but what about Paul and Maureen why weren t they running the ranch Secondly, I feel that there was never time to really get to know any of the new characters in this book and I kept getting them all confused.Thirdly, Twilight was not as endearing as her ancestors.Fourthly, the whole story seemed disjointed.Fifthly, what was up with that ending I m so c [...]

    It s sad I remember really liking this well over a decade ago, by now But this is stiltedly written and has next to no plot, and what there is of the plot revolves around forcing a horse to find a way to perform, so that the horse can live up to her famous grandmother It s not enough of an impetus And there s some really frustrating dialogue Do you want to work clearing kids skin forever, Mom Horses So much important than teenagers and doctoring That s just one example the entire ending rubbed [...]

    What did I despise most about this book The lack of the Beebe family The constant references to the earlier books in the series The flat characters or the absurd plot I ll just be over here pretending this volume doesn t exist and loving the original three.

    My daughter enjoyed this true horse story in the Misty of Chincoteague series Misty s Twilight is the grandaughter of Misty, born after the daughter of Misty named Sunshine is bred to a thoroughbred son of Bold Ruler Twi, as she is known, goes on to become a champion dressage horse.

    I have read other Marguerite Henry books and really liked them They were not boring and were easy to follow But Misty s Twilight is hard to follow and boring The characters don t make any sense and I don t understand the beginning It s hard to tell who the kids are and only said three names, but there are characters than that I don t know which horse is the red one Trust me don t read it

    I read this book shortly after reading the original three Misty books, which I also read as a child I loved those three then, and I love them now those books have so much to offer, with excellent stories and character development.Unfortunately, Twilight was very disjointed and unfocused, without a clear story or goal, or even main character Part of the problem is that this story covers almost two decades of time, which is a lot of ground to go over in a children s book In Twilight, Sandy Price h [...]

    THREE IN ONE PINTO TALENTThis charming story takes place long after Misty s death, but the spirit of this famous Chincoteague pony lives on inspiring another generation of horse loving children and adults Down in Florida on Stolen Hours Farm Dr Sandy cherishes a dream to travel to the coast of Virginia to purchase some Chincoteage ponies of her own Captivated by the MISTY book and nationally beloved story about the little filly of Pony Ranch, she drags her unenthusiastic kids along returning hom [...]

    This is one of Henry s worst books It begins promisingly and then soon dives into a mess There are continuity errors for example what happened to the other 5 ponies bought with Misty s Twilight s dam The owner seems clueless as to what to do with her long suffering and talented half thoroughbred, half Chincoteague pony.The ending is confusing, convoluted and head scratching Misty s Twilight is to represent wild creatures How even though she d never spent one day as a wild equine From what I gath [...]

    I ve always loved Marguerite Henry s wonderful world of Chincoteague ponies, but this one seemed to lack the vibrance the others held It still had a fairly interesting plot, but I really missed the old ponies, characters, and setting It didn t have the same magical feel Henry had incorporated in her other books.

    It was a good book.

    This is the fourth and final book in the Misty series I enjoyed reading this one a lot because the author put thought in it to make it different it was different than the others because it takes place several years later then the other books in the series.The story is about a mom and her two kids that want to go see the famous horses they have heard so much about in the papers, books and movies They arrive at a ranch that is owned by Paul, who was one of the owners of the famous horse Misty The [...]

    I loved the Misty books when I was a child This one lost me when they took the much too young foal away from it s mother The claim was it was too young to swim back and they wouldn t let the woman buy the mare She was supossed to be some expert horsewoman but she just HAD to have this foal without regard IMHO of it s health and safety Didn t finish, extremely disappointed.

    Renee
    Good book Different voice and feel from the first three books Wish it would have explained about the Paul and Maureen and about what happened with Twilight A little disappointing when compared to the first three but overall still good.

    Rachel
    The adventure of Twi was really inspirational for me, the story of a pinto who rose against discrimination, and i feel that this book was a worthy Misty story I was disappointed that Stormy didn t come into play, but I understand that for the book to make sense, Stormy had to be excluded.

    I know all the stories are semi biographical, but this one felt the most so It wasn t particularly interesting and felt like a middle school biography than anything else.

    Chris
    A fun and wholesome continuation on the Misty saga I recommend this book to all readers age 9.

    Claire
    I love horses I also love the author Marguerite Henry.

    This one was a bummer after reading the other Misty stories It just didn t have the same magic My daughter loved it but she ll listen to a horse story any day.

    A childhood favorite re visited.Is the story as good as I remember YesWhat ages would I recommend it too All ages Children will enjoy the single storyline while adults enjoy an easy afternoon read especially while waiting on a bus, show, doctor, or other appointments.Length Reasonable for an afternoon.Characters Memorable, several characters, though a bit confusing in the beginning.Setting Real world, Recent times 1970 s and 1980 s.Written approximately 1992.Does the story leave questions in the [...]

    Not your typical Marguerite Henry fare It feels like she is trying too hard to appeal to a modern reader The horse owner is your typical English show horse owner, leaves the horse with a trainer and looks in every now and then Unfortunately, the trainer wasn t quite trustworthy A conscientious owner would be at the barn at least every other week, if not to ride than at least to check in So this kind of fell flat, it felt unrealistic, and it also felt like Ms Henry was uncomfortable with her new [...]

    Sandy s dream has always been to have a Chincoteague pony, ever since she read the Misty books as a child So she packs up the car, complete with her two kids, and they re off But they don t come home with one Chincoteague pony.They come home with four Including one of Misty s true descendants, a lovely mare who has a foal named Twilight.I enjoyed the story Like Sandy, I read all three original Misty books when I was a child This fourth episode was written many years later, which meant, of course [...]

    I read this book to see if my students might want to read it It was okay Every conflict seemed to be resolved in two pages The people sort of talked in speeches She kept inserting characters who s lives had been changed by an earlier book of hers It was all a bit underwhelming I do think there s one student out there who might like it, so I put it on my shelf I should probably give it to a teacher of a lower grade.

    In this book Dr Sandy, a woman fascinated with the book Misty of Chinoteague and takes a trip to watch the annual Pony Penning, and buy several colts Then Dr Sandy and her children meet a young horse descended from Misty They buy her and name her Twilight Through a series of events, Dr Sandy decides to train Misty, but as what a cutter horse, a jumper, or in dressage This is how Dr Sandy and Misty become family I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

    Jodi
    This book was definitely easier to read than Misty of Chincoteague because it wasn t written n venacular I am not a big horse person but I really dont understand why Sandy shipped Twilight all over and spent so much time away from her Also, I think I would rather have heard about Twilight than about Sandy Still a decent book that my daughter enjoyed having me read to her.

    Rachael
    This book is about a mother named Sandy with a passion for horses, and her two normal kids Pam and Chris Their pony Twilight is part Chincoteague, part Thoroughbred, and is a direct decendant os the famous Misty of Chincouteague Sandy, Pam and Chris go on a mission to find the perfevt carreer for the pony that they bred.

    Valerie
    This was not my favorite for the Misty series, but it was still excellent I read it out loud to my eight year old horse loving daughter We have a horse, so we could relate to many of the stories I enjoyed learning about cutting and dressage two horse events that I did not know very much about before reading this book.
