When a novel like Huckleberry Finn or The Yearling comes along, it defies customary adjectives because of the intensity of the response it evokes in the reader. Such a tale is Old Yeller; to listen to this eloquently simply story of a boy and his dog in the Texas hill country is an unforgettable and deeply moving experience.
"There is something special in the telling of this story which makes it more than just a tender account of a boy's love for his dog, and more than a tale of frontier days. It is the combination of excellent writing and the sensitivity to human emotions that places it on a shelf with the classics." (Saturday Review of Literature)
"Exciting and heartwarming indeed. Recommended for adults and teenagers." (Library Journal)

Can't go wrong with a classic!
Great story that captured the heart of my son.
Old Yeller was the best character. Although he had no spoken lines, he was the heart of the story. He displayed loyalty, courage and love and even some comic relief and a touch of mischief.
For a child with dyslexia, the reader adds support as he reads along with the story. My son would not have experienced the story at all without the support of the reader. He would not have had the confidence to read a book of that length without the audio.
The only thing that kept my son from reading/listening in one sitting was bed time.
