I liked the way that Little Willy wanted to help his grandfather. It took a lot of courage to be in the race. Little Willy loved his grandfather a lot .
It is a happy book because Little Willy hopefully will save the farm. I felt anxious when I was wondering if Little Willy could win the race. But there are sad parts too. Little Willy has to make a big sacrifice when he loses Searchlight, his dog.
I felt horrible when Searchlight died. Parts of this book remind me of myself. I know what it is like to have your dog die. My dog died of old age and I really miss him a lot.
I recommend this book to all kids who like dogs and sled races. It is a really good book to show the love between family members.
