Where the Red Fern Grows The book Where the Red Fern Grows is a great story about a boy named Billy and his two dogs. The book is written by Wilson Rawls. He did an outstanding job in describing some of Billy's thoughts and feelings. Mr. Rawls has really outdone himself this time. If it isn't obvious, I really liked this book. I really liked the part when Billy got his two dogs, Little Ann and Old Dan. He saved all of his money for those dogs. He had big plans of the three of them being a hunting team. This goes to show that dreams can and do come true if the dreamer works hard enough for it. I like how Mr. Rawls described Billy's exuberance and the cute little puppies' sense of innocence. Another one of the many good parts in the book Where the Red Fern Grows is the death of Old Dan and then Little Ann.

Unformatted text preview: Billy had worked so hard to get those dogs and he had grown so attached to them both through their many adventures, topped off by the mountain lion incident. This part in the book is by far the saddest and almost brought a tear to my eye. By far the most touching part of the book and my personal favorite part is when Billy goes to say good-bye to his buried dogs and he sees the red fern. He then remembers the old Indian legend about where the red fern grows, hence the name of the book. Mr. Rawls did a great thing when he made the ending a happy one. This is a terrific book that is very happy and sad at the same time. It's a literary masterpiece. While reading the book I felt what Billy was feeling. It was written so good that I could just put myself in Billy's place. Once again, this is a great book....
