Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson RawlsI read this book in 4th grade. One day I was waiting for class when an obnoxious boy decided it would be a good idea to take it. I informed him that it was my favorite book in the whole wide world and if he didnt give it back that hed be sorry. He then threatened to tear the book in half. With that I walked over to him, hit him over the head with my cast (I had broken my wrist a few weeks prior), took my book and calmly walked away.
I think that a book that inspires someone to violence in the 4th grade is worth reading, dont you?

The late-afternoon Oklahoma sun shone between the trees, lighting the old man in vertical stripes as he crunched through the autumn leaves toward the split-rail fence. When he got to the fence, he bent down and reached between the lower rails to a small shadow on the other side. He withdrew his hand, but now it held a lump of rusty fur that was licking and chewing his fingers as only an eight-week-old redbone puppy can. Wilson Rawls, best-selling author, had come home just as he had written he would on the last page of Where the Red Fern Grows. Rawls was back home to see the set and help with the motion picture adaptation of his book.
