Old Yeller 1957 Honor Book **

Old Yeller is a story about a boy and his love-hate relationship with a dog named "Old Yeller" Spoiler: Old Yeller dies.

I need to give full disclosure and say that I do not like dogs. For most of the book I was agreeing with Travis and his dislike for Old Yeller. The ending seemed a little dramatic to me Travis having to shoot the dog himself. I must admit I didn't shed one tear reading this book. But in all fairness, Where the Red Fern Grows does make me cry.

  1. This may be one of those rare books where the movie is better than the novel.
