"This title is an excellent selection for family listening or for anyone desiring an uplifting, but realistic tale." (AudioFile)
I like the realistic elements of American boyhood from yesteryear retold in such a natural and unassuming fashion to not only hold the attention span of my 7 year-old son, but kept him up at night thinking and talking about the story and upon waking begged to hear more ! A true classic in every way! The audio voice skillfully portrayed and distinguished the characters which made for an enjoyable time of listening and actually enhances the story in my opinion. Highly recommend for emotionally mature children, particularly for that boy who loves the great outdoors!
Heartwarming story. I read this as a teenager and decided to revisit the story on Audible. The Narration is probably the best I've heard. I loved listening to this classic!
My 4th grade teacher read this book to me and ever since its been my alltime favorite book. I am not much of a reader but this is a book I could re-read over and over and never get tired of the heartwarming tale of Billy and his 2 loving dogs, Old danne and Little Anne.
My son and I listened to this while following along with the book. The narrator helped make great pictures in our head. We enjoyed it.
I can't read this book enough times. The narrator really captures the emotion of this book. Caution: do not listen while driving!
i have loved this book since i was a child. i never got tired ...nice to find on audio. ..and the performance of the reader was phenomenal very impressive...any dog lover. ..with love this book. ..no offense but the movie was horrible. book is 100% better.
I would not have purchased this book, let alone ever had it in my wish list, if someone had mentioned that the dogs die.
That is always a deal breaker for me. So if you feel the same way, I have just saved you a few bucks!
