    " I think that this book was a pretty good book and a great unique tale of courage and inspiration. Willy is a very brave little kid to compete in a dog sleigh race especially with grownups. I think that this book is a one-of-a-kind story with lots of cliff hangers to engage the reader in the book. Once you start reading the book, I think it's hard to put it down, "
