    " Still as good as I remember from when I was a kid! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 2/19/2014

    " I could read this book a hundred times more and cry every single one of them. I'm so glad I read this book when I was a child. If you have children, (maybe over the age of 7?) please read this to them immediately. But only when you've read it first:) This is such a perfect coming of age story and reminder of the innocence and love that we all still carry for our childhood and the pets and joys that grew up with us. "

I'm not going to give anything up here because I don't want to ruin it for anyone else but this is a true love story. You feel the love, commitment & dedication of this little boy & his dogs. So sweet & heartwrenching!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nilah | 5/10/2013

    " Even though I thought that this was a book for young adults I decided to read it because I never read it when I was younger. I was happy I did because I really enjoyed it. I guess there is a reason it is a classic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 3/6/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Penny | 2/23/2013

    " One of my kids liked this and one of my kids hated it. I'm kind of bored by it, although as a mom I think it's interesting to read about a time when a kid walked barefoot 30 miles to the city without telling his parents, and when he came back home, his parents were proud of him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nick | 9/27/2012

    " I'll be totally honest, this book made me cry. It still does every time I re-read it. I first heard it when my second grade teacher Ms. Horn read it to the class a chapter at a time, and it has been very dear to me ever since. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle | 8/20/2012

    " I had to read this book as a summer reading book in 6th grade and I absolutely loved it. I finished the entire thing in one day. This was the first and only book that ever made me cry, and when I say cry I mean I balled my eyes out. I definitely recommend it to anyone. "

    " Read this book with my 9-year-old son. I also read it in 5th grade. It is one of my favorite books. Such important life lessons about persistence and responsibility. Slower paced book than what kids today might be used to, but that is part of its appeal. A wonderful adventure about love and loss. "

About the Author
Author Wilson Rawls

Wilson Rawls grew up on a small farm in the Ozark Mountains of Oklahoma. There were no schools where he lived so his mother taught Rawls and his sisters how to read and write. He says that reading the book The Call of the Wild changed his life and gave him the notion that he would like to grow up to write a book like it. He shared his dream with his father, and his father gave him the encouraging advice, “Son, a man can do anything he sets out to do, if he doesn’t give up.” Rawls never forgot his father’s words, and went on to create two novels about his boyhood that have become modern classics.
