Stone Fox Review

Stone FoxStone Fox by John Reynolds Gardiner

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I had to read this book for school, and I liked it a lot more than I thought I would.

Stone Fox is a sad story, but that doesn't mean it's not a good one.

The basic plot of the story is Willy's grandpa has gotten sick. Willy doesn't know why, and he needs to find a way to cure him. Willy really enjoys sled racing and has one dog named Searchlight.

Searchlight is a very faithful and loyal dog, and always has Willy's back.

Over all, I'd recomend this to anyone, but I do warn you, it's very sad.

I bawled at the end.

The Swiss Familly Robinson Review.

The Swiss Family Robinson (Unabridged Classics)The Swiss Family Robinson by Johann David Wyss

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This week I had to read The Swiss Family Robinson for school.

The Swiss Family Robinson is a really great book. It tells the classic tale of being shipwrecked on an island, but with its own twists. The family has many adventures, challenges and fun.

The family is from Switzerland, and they were sailing to join a colony in the new world when a huge storm hit and their ship was destroyed--the only survivors that they know of were themselves and some animals. There are four kids in the family; Fritz, the oldest and the best shot, Jack, the second oldest and best rider, Ernest the smartest and second youngest, and Franz, the youngest who tries to be just like his brothers.

At times the story is sort of repetetive, but it didn't slow the book down at all. I really enjoyed the adventure and action, and I feel like I could survive being shipwrecked myself now that I've read this book!

I'd definitely recommend this book to kids and adults 4th grade and up!
