This was a book I read because Mr. K's reading class was reading it too! At first I didn't think I would enjoy this book because I am not that interested in hunting, but boy was I wrong! In my opinion, Wilson Rawls does an awesome job of informing the reader about the different aspects of hunting coons. I do love dogs, so I fell in love with Little Ann and Big Dan right away! The best parts of the book showed how Billy's character worked hard and was patient for what he wanted. Rawls also used words in such a way that I felt excitement when Billy was hunting and I felt extreme sadness towards the end of the book. The ending of the story also made me feel hopeful for Billy and his family.
