What I loved about this book was how much of it is reflective – lots of flashbacks and momentary recollections that round out the characters and give the reader lots of context and history about the setting and I avoided this book, thinking it one of those dog stories and I’ve read far too many of those – Terhune, et al.
The story was unnecessarily drawn out and included plot filler that seemed irrelevant estee unnecessary.

Want to Read saving…. Ginger steals everybody’s heart. Jun 24, Andrea rated it it was ok. Mar 21, Jonathan rated it it was ok Shelves: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s We really loved this classic. This mangled, sidetracking, lack of interest and shallow character filled story is the book that beat out “Charlotte’s Web” the year it was released? This one example in and of itself goes to prove how extremely worthless the Newbery is.
