        This is a book about a ten year old buy who really wants two dogs, but not just any dogs, these special type of dogs. The book goes through of him spending two years to earn enough money to buy these two dogs he saw in a magazine ad. It is a really special book and I love it a lot because it is so heart warming. Try to read it if you can.

                I loved this book. The book is the author, Wilson Rawls own story with Billy Colman as the fictional character who wants nothing more than a pair of Redbone Coonhounds for hunting. After seeing a magazine ad for coonhounds, Billy spends the next two years working odd jobs to earn the $50 he needs to buy two puppies.

                    I gave this book a 4 star rating because it was a really good book I think it was a little emotional more twords the end of the book. You will have to read about it to find out why it it emotional. Its about a boy who had dreams about buying 2 puppies but his mom said that he had to save his own money so he could have enough money to buy them. He had to save up for 2 years! And when he gets the money he buys the dogs but something happens to one of the dogs! Read more about this book to find out what happens and why this book is emotional.

                      Great review! Thank you for not adding spoilers, I think you can talk a little more about the dogs since the book revolves around them, bot other than that, amazing review!
