Eh.. I guess it was ok but I wish there were more exciting stuff in it. It will be way better that way. But either way it was ok.

Stone Fox is a lovely story about a boy, Little Willie, who enters a dog sled race in hopes to save his grandfather’s farm. When I first read it over five years ago, I was not too found of the story and struggled to finish it; however, now I have a greater appreciation of historical fiction and flew through the book. Stone Fox has lovable and beautifully written characters and paints a realistic picture of what life was like in the beginning of the 1900’s in Wyoming. I quickly became fond of Little Willy, his grandfather, his dog Searchlight, and many of the other characters in this book (including, by the end, Stone Fox). In the end, I found myself rooting for Little Willy along side all the towns folk while he raced. Stone Fox is a delightful story and I look forward to rereading it in the future! @maroonmouse of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

I have read this book three times and all three times I had a box of tissues nearby. Stone Fox is a beautifully written story about the love a grandson has for his grandfather and the exceptional love and loyalty of a dog to his boy. This tender story and unexpected emotional ending will stay with readers for years after they close the book.

A beautiful story about a little boy who refuses to give up and the dog who is his constant companion. Be aware, though, that this is a "dog book," so expect some tears! Though the book is much shorter and simpler, this might be a good one for those who enjoy "Where the Red Fern Grows" or "Woodsong."

I read this book with my fourth graders and they all loved it. Although the ending was unexpected and sad, the book overall was good. I wish it didn't end the way it did though...

Definitely not 1st grade reading level. I recommend it for at least grade 4. They can handle the reading level and the sad ending.

Stone Fox was really good. The ending was happy and sad at the same time.
