A heart-tugging picture book by the author of the Newbery Honor Book.

Marguerite Henry (née Breithaupt; April 13, 1902 – November 26, 1997) was an American writer of children's books, writing fifty-nine books based on true stories of horses and other animals. She won the Newbery Medal for one of her books about horses and she was a runner-up for two others. One of the latter, Misty of Chincoteague (1947), was the basis for several sequels and for the 1961 movie Misty.

Joseph and Justin may be twins, but they sure aren't much alike. A heart-tugging picture book by the author of the Newbery Honor Book Misty of s it seems that the only thing these twins have in common is Midge, the family's Shetland pony. Joseph has fair hair and a deep love of the outdoors. Dark-haired Justin would rather play his piccolo or read a book. But they lovingly tend to Midge, and she, in turn, gives them the best gift of all - a horse family of their very own.

With Misty of Chincoteague, Marguerite Henry launched the horse-mad dreams of millions of readers. I was following the myth of a pony Henry launched into legend in 1947 with her children’s book about a real pony that lived here, Misty of Chincoteague. One finally went to Pony Penning on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. It was by now approaching 8 . All around me on the water in the channel, which runs between Chincoteague Island and the uninhabited nature preserve of Assateague Island, were other pony-seekers.

  • Kitaxe
Henry's stories have a certain 'magic' when it comes to writing about horses. She does it again in this wonderful story about very different twin boys and their first pony. This is more of a book for younger kids but horse lovers of all ages will appriciate it too. It has beautiful pictures, a good balance to the story and Henry's usual realistic, warm and timeless characters. This book is good, clean fun with no scary parts and nothing too intense. If I was a parent or a teacher (I am neither) I would consider this book and excellent choice. Being an aunt, I am sure I will end up reading this again soon!

I loved the beautiful color pictures and bright cover but the editing in this book really left something to be desired. Ms. Henry had a great little story concept with this book but the choppy storyline and weird page layout made it hard to follow.

It appeared that she had written it in her standard form, with chapters, but her editor had removed the chapter tags and had squashed everything together. As a result I kept having to re-read every page to understand what was going on; I feel that a young reader would have been very frustrated by it.

I believe that with some new editing this will be a wonderful book. In the meantime I will just keep looking at the pictures.
