Stone Fox Book Review by Kid #1

I just finished a book called Stone Fox by John Reynolds Gardiner. I would recommend it because it is an interesting book about dog racing.

Stone Fox is fun to read because it is exciting. It is exciting because you never know what will happen next. The main character is winning the race. He takes a short cut and gets ahead of everyone. The short cut is dangerous because it goes over ice and it could break. You have to read the book to find out what happens next.

Another reason to read Stone Fox is because it is suspenseful. At the beginning, Willy's grandfather is sick but Willy thinks he is pretending. After the doctor comes, Willy knows that Grandfather is really sick. Willy starts running the farm and enters the race to win the prize money so that he can pay the taxes. But you have to read the book to find out if Grandfather gets better. The race is for adults but Willy still enters it anyway. Everyone thinks he will lose because Stone Fox was undefeated for the last 10 years. When reading the book, you are surprised by who wins.

I recommend this book because it is exciting and suspenseful. It is a good book for boys and girls.
