Disney ruined this book when they made it into a movie. The novel is vastly different and so much better. A great read aloud that will have you both laughing and crying. I like this book much better than, Where the Red Fern Grows, which the author is more known for.

Tiffany I actually like showing the movie in my classroom after reading the book to drive home the message: "The book is sooooo much better than the movie!"

Laura Exactly what Tiffany said. My students would get upset with the movie.
