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?

      It's so sad when the dog tried so hard to win the race but dies and the man lets them cross the finish line! I felt like crying and my teacher even cried!

          me too. Happy ending, and sad also. Stone Fox is really generous. I love the book so much, that I kind of want to do a book report on it.

            really sad. I was pretty much crying right in front of my whole class last year when I read it. I always like reading a book over and over again, so I'll probably read it soon.

              Stone Fox is a really good story about a boy and his loyal dog. They face many challenges together, including a dog sled race against the champion Stone Fox.

                He is definitely trying to win, and I know why. He wants Stone Fox to know who he is. Really good book.
