Marguerite Henry, author of the Newbery Award-winning classic Misty of Chincoteague, based this delightful story on the adventures of a real-life Grand Canyon burro. Brighty touched the hearts of all who knew him -even President Teddy Roosevelt. John McDonough's animated performance brings out the burro's joyous free spirit and courageous determination.

This book totally captivated our 9 and 13 year old boys. We listened in the car on they way to and from the Grand Canyon which made it even more meaningful. The reader did a super job with the character voices.
I have not read or listened to a Marguerite Henry book yet that I have not totally enjoyed. Brighty is such a cool donkey. Many lessons can be learned from Brighty.
