    About “Marguerite Henry

    1. Marguerite Henry says:

      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.

    1. I sometimes wish that with regard to Marguerite Henry's Sea Star, I had not decided a few years ago to check online resources about the real-life happenings that precipitated this novel (as the ending, or rather as the actual and non-fiction ending of said events was not at all positive in outcome, a for me rather nasty shock that tends to even make me tear up a bit whenever I think of it, whenever I now reread the novel, although realistically, and as someone a bit familiar with horses and hors [...]

    2. I think I liked this even better than I liked Misty, though in some ways it's similar. I think one of the things I like about it is that Maureen was more active. I mean, sure, she still had to do housekeeping type stuff, but she also got to ride bareback etc. And she even almost let the beans burn!

    3. what was I, 8? 10? 12? .I read this dozens of times an older edition with a different picture on the front but same story. Wonderful. I went back to Chincoteague in March and saw the wild horses out on Assateague Island, and walked on the beach and felt the wind in my hair and book postcards of the horses in the surf and bought Misty Of Chincoteague for my niece. It was wonderful to be back there again (last time was in 1963 and I was 6). I really enjoyed myself.

    4. When I was younger a friend of mine had the first book in this series, and I had always wanted to read them. So when I saw book 2 and 3 at a yard sale I grabbed them up with a skip in my step. I didn't for one moment wonder if I wouldn't enjoy them as much now.I loved every page of this story. I loved Misty's personality and how the children loved her. I loved the grandparents. Reading about the roundup made me want to research it or read a non fiction book about it. I was so proud of Paul and M [...]

    5. I would have given this one four stars, but I hate, hate, hate the first half. Not because it's poorly written, but because selling Misty, even for all the children of the world to see, is upsetting and rude. There was no reason they couldn't have found Sea Star with Misty there. Still, Sea Star is pretty cute, although once again, most of the book isn't about him, but rather about Misty and selling her; Henry's writing, fortunately, makes up for most everything.

    6. Read this one aloud to my daughter, who is a big fan of horse stories. I had read this book as a child, but honestly had forgotten most of the tale over the decades. All in all it is a nice story, and continues the Misty of Chincoteague story of the Beebe's, as Misty is sent away to become a star, and Paul and Maureen rescue an orphan foal that ends up filling some of the hole left in their hearts with Misty's departure.

    7. 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 (1940′s).Written approximately? – 1949.Does the s [...]

    8. I read this with my 8 yo daughter. Both of us enjoyed this story of Sea Star. There are certainly moments of heartbreak and concern but it's primarily a joyous and loving tale.

    9. After reading Misty of Chincoteague, anyone could become enamoured with the ponies of Assateague island. That being said, this book is kind of a let down after that. While it was still well written for children and does envelop the horse culture that is Chincoteague, the story almost seems incomplete and not very fleshed out.Its the next Pony Penning day at Chinconteague and before all the wild ponies of Assateague can be driven over to the island, Paul and Maureen are approached by some movie m [...]

    10. Sea Star has become one of those books that I absolutely adored when I was a kid and now can barely tolerate now that I'm 47. Then again, when I was 4 I liked peanut butter and mustard sandwiches, but this difference isn't so extreme. Let me explain.As a story, it's really sweet without being disgustingly so. An orphan foal is discovered by the Beebe kids and they work like heck to save. And the art is FAB. If you are going to buy this book, make sure you get one with all of the full-color and b [...]

    11. These books are so wrapped up in my childhood that I see the title and remember the school library and sitting on the floor with my best friend, reading the books. I think Marguerite Henry is the source of my obsession with reading everything in a series.

    12. Paul and Maureen find a baby colt that is stranded and they rescue and help to care for their new friend. A lot of work goes into caring for a baby colt and the kids have much to and think about with a lot of work ahead of them, but they enjoy it because of how much they love the colt. I liked this book the author made the story really good for readers and horse fans everywhere.

    13. The story of two siblings who make a very unselfish choice and sell their beloved horse so their cousin can attend college. Then in the midst of their sadness, they find a foal who may just need them as much as they need. Sea Star.

    14. My children enjoyed the second book, but they definitely were not as drawn to it as the first one. Sea Star doesn’t appear until halfway through the book. They were anxious for his debut. The rest of his story seemed a bit rushed.

    15. Was a very good story, though it was a little hard to read because of the old english. I loved the characters of Paul and Maureen, though. They were so caring, it was hard not to love them. Overall good book.

    16. Another quick read. Henry is an excellent scene-setter. The descriptions are beautiful. Now I really want to visit. Quaint storry-telling from the 40s. The vocabulary was rather impressive. You only know you're reading a children's book because of the lack of a villain of any sort.

    17. "Oh, they’re wild and woolly and full of fleas, and never been curried below the knees…"Cute book for lovers of horses or simply just lovers of Misty's world.

    18. This is one of the books I read before I started keeping my book list. Even though it was years ago, I remember the story and how much I loved it.The date is estimate.

    19. Another enjoyable read and our second chapter book! My daughter will always love these books, just like I did!

    20. I LOVED these books by Marguerite Henry as a pre-teen. Any girl who is horse-crazy will love them.

    21. My daughter and I loved this wonderful story. I adore how Henry gives her child characters lots of responsibility and independence. This sequel is exciting and heartwarming.

    22. This didn't appeal to me quite as much as Misty of Chincoteague, nevertheless it was an appealing follow-up to that book. Paul and Maureen are still on Chincoteague Island, helping Grandpa and Grandma run their pony ranch. And they still have their beloved spunky Misty. But then Paul and Maureen do something shocking! Something unbelievable! Something heartbreaking! And although they do it for a noble reason, I kind of wish they acted like real kids with real emotions--feeling resentment and ang [...]

    23. THE MYRTLE CUREAlthough author Marguerite Henry had not envisioned a sequel to MISTY, she found herself touched by the real plight of a tiny orphan colt whose mother had died at Tom's Cove. Those plucky youngsters, Paul and Maureen Beebe, make the ultimate sacrifice: they decide to sell their beloved Misty in order to finance their uncle's education at Seminary. But when the Lord cloes one door, he often opens a window somewhere else. In this case the starving little type whickers his way into t [...]

    24. The first sequel of "Misty of Chincoteague." If someone you know likes books about horses and has little trouble adjusting to a different period and style of writing, steer them to Marguerite Henry. In "Misty" and "Sea Star," the siblings Paul and Maureen often fall into stereotyped gender behavior (Maureen does the dishes while Paul helps with a loud speaker system), but their relationship with their grandparents (the mysterious parents are in China) is loving and charming, and Maureen is a pre [...]

    25. This is a good book for kids to read, no doubt about it, but it has lost some of its magic for me in the past decade. After the lovely story that was Misty of Chincoteague, this "sequel" doesn't dazzle me nearly quite as much. I felt quite disconnected from everything that was happening — I felt like everything happened too fast for me to develop an opinion on the action itself and what the Beebes did. The characters were less developed, which was a bit sad to see, given that this book has mor [...]

    26. This was a wonderful continuation of Misty and her human family. Even if you haven't read book 1 you could still understand this one, but reading these in order you get to understand and know the situations and characters well. This one the children have to make an adult decision and later are rewarded with saving a newborn baby colt! They care for him as much as they can until they find a mama horse that they put him with to nurse. This is a wonderful story of children working together as sibli [...]

    27. Sea Star starts out sad. Paul and Maureen decide they have to sell Misty, who they bought the year before, in order to send their uncle to college. The parting is very sad, as Misty is family to them, but they decide other children should be able to experience Misty. Later, Maureen and Paul find a young colt, whom they name Sea Star. Her mother has died and the children take her under their wing. But Sea Star is not eating-will Maureen and Paul be able to save Sea Star? I rate this book 4 out of [...]
