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.

Great review, Xan! I think it's cool how even books you have to read for school, ones you might not pick up yourself from the bookstore or library, can still be awesome books.
