If a book has an animal in it: Bingo! It's for me! And "Old Yeller" is just as rough 'n' tumble, just as slobbery sweet, just as beautiful as I remember it being.
Yes, it's heartbreaking, but it goes beyond that. It's about friendship, and how tough people used to be; it's about making bonds, and the strength and resilience of the human heart.
If you want a story about a boy and his dog, playing, without a care in the world--this book is not for you.
If you want a story about a boy and his dog, going beyond survival in a tough world, all because of a true and pure love--please, please, give this book a chance.
And if, chances are, you read this as a youngun', treat yourself to another listen: Beauty is timeless, and we never stop growing up...

What did you love best about Old Yeller?
Great story that captured the heart of my son.
Who was your favorite character and why?
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.
What does Peter Francis James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
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.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
The only thing that kept my son from reading/listening in one sitting was bed time.
