    Marguerite Henry writes wonderful books about horses, and this one is by far my favorite. It is about a brother and sister named Paul and Maureen who have their hearts set on buying the horse that everyone calls Phantom. They want to buy her at the annual Pony Penning Day. For years no one has been able to catch her because she always slips out of their grasp and is believed to be a "Phantom". But this year Paul is finally old enough to go over to Chincoteague island and round up the horses with all the other men. The stakes aren't exactly fair for the Phantom though, because she has a colt! Paul and Maureen have saved enough money for the Phantom, but they hadn't realized they would have to buy the colt too. This is a great story that shows you that not everything is meant to be in captivity, some things are just wild.

      I didn't read a lot of this book yet but from the way I see it it looks like a wonderful book to read when you love horses or really any animal.
