I Like this book, but this particular narrator reads the book particularly slow, with long pauses. My students became bored with this narration, and I had to take over reading the book orally.

I stayed awake to hear the story

This book took me to a place and people I'll never see or know. A coming of age story of a boy where snow covered winter home community has no dogs. Accordng to a tale of the boys grandparent's days , starvation caused the community to eat the precious dogs. Except for one wise elderly man, who has several sled dogs that have grown fat from doing nothing. What's a young teenage boy to do? I love this story.
