Misty of Chincoteague By Marguerite Henry illustrated by Wesley Dennis
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?

And she and Jennifer collaborate on cooking up an ointment that will enable them to fly. That’s when a marvelous toad, Hilary Ezra, enters their lives. And that’s when trouble starts to brew.

The Wanderer by Sharon Creech illustrated by David Diaz
One thirteen-year-old girl’s sailing journey across the Atlantic Ocean brings more adventure than just the battle of the open seas. This Newbery Honor favorite by acclaimed author Sharon Creech is repackaged with a beautiful new look!
Thirteen-year-old Sophie is on a sailboat bound for England, with an unlikely crew of her three surly uncles and two bothersome cousins, Cody and Brian. Sophie is all seriousness—anxious to get going, ready to face the ocean blue and see her Grandpa Bompie on the other side of the Atlantic. When the Wanderer finds itself in the middle of a raging Atlantic storm, the crew is forced to leave their family bickering aside and band together to get through the ocean's torrent and safely to the shores of England, where the reward of the physical and emotional battles they waged at sea await them. But what Sophie learns about her own past impacts her more deeply than even the ocean that threatens to engulf the ship.
