I was very disappointed with this story, as I found it one of the few Newbery award winners that does not stand up to the test of time. I am sure I would have enjoyed it as a child, but as an adult I found it very slow paced and rather boring. Ten-year-old Jerry Pye has his heart set on a dog, and buys one with a hard-earned dollar. Little Ginger is a smart and lovable terrier who lives up to Jerry's expectations, and they spend many happy days together until tragedy strikes. While the book is sweet enough in its quaint portrayal of childhood in the 40's (or 50's?) it takes a very long and drawn-out 306 pages to tell a simple story that falls somewhat flat in the ending.
