This book is about a boy named Little Willy and his farm. His grandfather gets sick because he never had enough money to pay the taxes for the farm so they might lose their farm. Read the book to see if Little Willy saves the farm.
My favorite part was when Little Willy entered the sled dog race. This is my favorite part because it is exciting to see if Little Willy will win the race.
I felt sad, excited and curious when I read this book. It was sad when his grandfather stopped doing what he used to do and just stayed in bed. I was excited when Little Willy entered the race. I was curious when Little Willy entered the race because I wanted to know if he would win.
My favorite character was Little Willy because he made me want to know what would happen next. I liked him because he wanted to save the farm. One of the funny parts is when Willy’s grandfather dressed up as a scarecrow for a joke to Little Willy.
I recommend this book to kids in 3rd grade to 5th grade. I think you should read this book because it is really exciting and you will feel a lot of emotions. You should read this book because you will find out if Little Willy will win the race and save the farm.
