Book Review of Where the Red Fern Grows

Where the Red Fern Grows
jconn avatar reviewed on + 7 more book reviews

This is a very overrated children's book set in early United States about a young country boy and his two dogs. It was fairly well-written and easy to read, but had a rather weak plot which tried to be sad and moving but was closer to being sad and pathetic. This book is required in a lot of elementary schools, and while it is far from being the worst book ever written, its status as being such a commonly required book is hardly to justified either.
