it was amazing

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.

Rebecca Brown Thanks for the review. We will be adding this one to our "to read" list.

message 2: by Tiffany (new)

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.

message 4: by Carol Ann (new) - added it

Carol Ann I whole heartedly agree! The book is so much richer in content. Children sit spell bound when it is read to them.
