This is a sad book. It is about a smart and determined boy named Little Willy. His mother had died so his Grandfather takes care of him. One day Grandfather falls ill. The tax collector tells them to pay their taxes. Willy wants to win the local dog sled race, the race against time... Stone Fox the greatest racer of all time is entering. Will he win?
I read this in third grade. I was crying over the last few pages when Searchlight dies. I have read this book a lot of times ( right now thinking about Searchlight dying makes me want to cry) This book will always stay with me.
Very funny book. I like how in the book A.J says instead of the noble prize he says the no bell prize is when people give bells to people with no bells. I've read this book a thousand times! I think Dan Gutman is super funny!
This is a thought-provoking, moving story about Willow Chance, a twelve year old genius. Willow loves the color red. She loves the number 7. Most of all, she loves her adoptive parents. But this couldn't save them. Shortly after Willow starts middle school, her beloved parents get into a fatal car crash. They do not survive. Soon, she becomes tangled in a huge web of lies. One lie after another creates a complicated situation. She soon realizes that your family is not a mom and dad. It is those you love. This is a very interesting book. I enjoyed how unique Willow's story was. This is a sweet, different, and heart warming book that you will remember long after the final page.
