Publishers Description Nobody could capture the Phantom. She was the wildest mare on Assateague Island. They said she was like the wind, that the white "map" on her shoulders was her mark of freedom. Paul and Maureen Beebe had their hearts set on owning her. They were itching to buy and tame her, and worked hard to earn the money that she would cost. But the roundup men had tried to capture her and for two years she had escaped them.... Pony Penning Day holds a surprise for everyone, for Paul not only brings in the Phantom, but her newborn colt as well. Can Paul and Maureen possibly earn enough to buy them both?

My daughter loved it! Mar 3, 2007
We got this book for our 7 year old daughter for Christmas. She's a good reader and loves horses. She read this book to herself in three days and loved it! She told us she now knew how to "talk like a horseman!" We can always tell when she loves a book because she gets emotionally wrapped up in the story and tells us all of the drama. This book seemed to make quite an impression on her. I haven't read it myself, but can say that my daughter fell in love with it.

I kinda like Misty of Chincoteage books.They are not the best books ever.It is about a ship carrying ponies that wrecks and the ponies swim to Chincoteage.Awhile later these kids catch the Phantom and her baby Misty.They are ponies.Good book.

Great service! Super fast shipping. Arrived in perfect condition. Thank you.
A great book for the child in all of us! Jan 11, 2007
I read this book when I was a horseless, but horse-crazy youngster. It led me to a faraway place where Marguerite Henry vividly painted a story before my eyes. I loved it then and now that I have a barn full of horses, I recently re-read it and still enjoyed it very much. A must-read for any young horse lover.
If you like horses chek it out now!! Dec 1, 2006
