      This was one of my favorite books as a boy. I was also a big fan of Summer of the Monkeys, but this one broke my heart each time I read it. And of course I never had a dog, but someday I'd like to have a hound dog. And also maybe a son. I'm less sure about living in the Ozarks, but I haven't ruled it out yet.

      Ending was good; the rest of the book was basically about these two coon dogs killing raccoons and their country bumpkin owner. Oh and btw I hate hunting so that definitely helped me like the book (that was sarcasm) 3/5 stars; just not for me Read for school

      A truly heart warming but sorrowful tale of a boy and his dogs. I had to get this book when I saw Where the Red Fern Grows, I always loved this story and hope to pass it on, since I first read it in fourth grade.

      Read this with my 12 year old son for our Parent Child Book Club. It was one of his favourite books from school last year. It is a lovely story about a boys and his dogs, a bit of a surprise choice for my sonsince he usually goes for the fantasy and gore books.

      The dog genre is a little too boyish for me, but this was probably my favorite.
