Stone Fox is a lovely story about a boy, Little Willie, who enters a dog sled race in hopes to save his grandfather’s farm. When I first read it over five years ago, I was not too found of the story and struggled to finish it; however, now I have a greater appreciation of historical fiction and flew through the book. Stone Fox has lovable and beautifully written characters and paints a realistic picture of what life was like in the beginning of the 1900’s in Wyoming. I quickly became fond of Little Willy, his grandfather, his dog Searchlight, and many of the other characters in this book (including, by the end, Stone Fox). In the end, I found myself rooting for Little Willy along side all the towns folk while he raced. Stone Fox is a delightful story and I look forward to rereading it in the future! @maroonmouse of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
