I liked this book because it is very heart warming. And it shows how friendship and love are very strong. The plot for the story is basically about a young boy named Billy (main character) who is trying to get two coonhound dogs, but his family is too poor to buy him some. So for two years Billy raises money to buy the dogs on his own. He names his dogs Little Ann and Old Dan. Billy and his dogs go through situations together that they may like or not like. Some characters that help Billy out in the story are Mama, Papa, Grampa, and Billy’s sisters.

Billy wishes that he could get some hounds one day. He saves enough money and buys 2 hounds. They hunt coons.

I didn’t care for the book. There wasn’t that much entertainment. The only thing I really liked was that the end of the book was unexpected.

A boy named Billy wants a dog, so he gets 2 and goes hunting. They live in the country. It was a sad book.

I liked it because it has lots of adventure and a kick of sadness in it.
