My Chincoteague Pony
A young girl's favorite story is Marguerite Henry's Misty of Chincoteague, and her fondest wish is to have a pony of her own. The child, Julie, convinces her farm-dwelling parents to take her to Chincoteague Island for Pony Penning Day so that she can bid in the auction. Unfortunately, she is continually outbid and realizes that the money she's earned won't be enough. Then, one pony is returned and several people in the crowd pitch in to make her dream come true.
