A Race Against Time Little Willy's grandfather is sick, and it's up to Willy to save their farm from tax collectors. Their only hope is the prize money from the National Dogsled Race. But a lot of other people want to win the race, too, including Stone Fox, who has never lost a race in his life. Do Willy and his dog Searchlight stand a chance against the toughest racers around? Can they win the race to save the farm -- and Grandfather -- before it's too late?

                      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 I have read this book a lot of times This book will always stay with me.
