    Billy gets his hounds

    ¿Where The Red Fern Grows,¿ is the story about a young boy named Billy who always dreamed of having hounds that he could teach to hunt raccoons. One day, he sees an ad in the paper for two beautiful hounds that had cost $50.00. During that summer Billy finds different jobs to save up to buy the two dogs and back then $50.00 was a lot of money. He works mostly for his Grandpa, who owns a little store just right up the road. That whole summer he works hard and had finally comes up with the money to buy the two dogs. He had got his dogs and started to teach them how to catch raccoons. Two months later, he wins the hunting contest with the most raccoons. One night, he decides to take his dogs hunting for the fun of it. While the dogs were hunting, they meet up with a mountain lion. Where The Red Fern Grows is a really good theme because, at one time in our lives we were all in the same position as the little boy in this story. The author used his words well in this story because, they were words that are easily understand but also hard words. The setting in this story is in the country where everybody always dreamed of being because it is a calm and quiet place where a person could do what ever he or she wants. The author's theme is powerful because even if reading one page readers will want to continue.

    One of my favorite children's books

    I first read this book in my fourth grade reading class, and I wasn't turned on to it very much at the time. Now that I look back, I can see that the book taught me so many lessons about life, and not only is it one of my favorite children's books, it is one of my favorite books of all time. It certainly is a 'tear-jerker,' but the morals and values of the book are invaluable. A great book for any age.
