In spite of tremendous odds, a ten-year-old boy and his dog are determined to win a dogsled race and the five-hundred-dollar prize

Publishers Description

John Reynolds Gardiner's action-packed canine adventure story of a thrilling dogsled race has captivated readers for more than thirty years.

Based on a Rocky Mountain legend, Stone Fox tells the story of Little Willy, who lives with his grandfather in Wyoming. When Grandfather falls ill, he is no longer able to work the farm, which is in danger of foreclosure. Little Willy is determined to win the National Dogsled Race--the prize money would save the farm and his grandfather. But he isn't the only one who desperately wants to win. Willy and his brave dog Searchlight must face off against experienced racers, including a Native American man named Stone Fox, who has never lost a race.

Exciting and heartwarming, this novel has sold millions of copies and was named a New York Times Outstanding Children's Book.

Stone Fox - Room 203 3rd Grade Review  Apr 2, 2008
Stone Fox by John Reynolds Gardinier

We read Stone Fox by John Reynolds Gardinier. This realistic fiction book is a must read! In this story, Little Willy lives with his Grandfather and dog Searchlight in wintery Wyoming. Grandfather gets very sick, and Little Willy worries he may not survive. Then Little Willy finds out he owes a big tax bill. He needs to pay $500 or they will lose their farm! So Little Willy enters his dog Searchlight into the sled race hoping to win the prize money. Stone Fox, who's never lost a race, also enters. Will Stone Fox keep his victorious record, or will Little Willy overcome the challenge to win the race? Read the book to find out!

You should read this book because it will teach you to face your fears and stay determined! We loved it because it was exciting and inspiring! We were inspired that Little Willy was only 1 of 6 people brave enough to race the intimidating Stone Fox (and the only kid). The description of the neck and neck race was so thrilling, we couldn't turn the pages fast enough to find out what would happen next! If you like adventure and dogs, this is the book for you! We strongly recommend this book because it is one of the best books we've read all year!
Gripping story  Jan 7, 2008
STONE FOX is one of the best written, most gripping children's stories. I have used it in my classroom with children ages 8 - 12. It is a story about a boy, his dog and his grandfather. It has an exciting plot line with a sled race. However I must warn you.... it has a SAD ending. A sign of a good book, I still cry everytime I read it and I have read it many times.
The Bad Sad Race  Nov 29, 2007
The Bad Sad Race!

Boom, the pistol shot for the Dog Sled race!

In the book Stone Fox Little Willy's grandfather is sick. Little Willy tries to cure it, but he dose not know what's wrong.

I like this part because I like races.

The others purpose for this story was to inspire kids and adults to race.

The Dog Race  Nov 29, 2007

The Dog Race

Boom the pistol shot up and the race had begun.

Stone Fox is an 81 paged book. Imagine you're self in Wyoming in a dog sled race going against someone you know but doesn't talk to you, and hurts you. It's about a little boy named Little Willy and his dog named Search Light. Search Light is ten years old and Little Willy is ten too. He has no brothers or sisters and lives with his grandfather. They live on a potato farm, and grows potato's every summer. Little Willy wants to save his grandpas farm so he enters a dog sled race to try and win money.

My favorite part is when the race had begun because I like races and I thought that was the best chapter because it was the most interesting chapter in the book.

I think the Authors purpose was to encourage kids to race and do there best.

I think this book is good for young readers .It's also good for kids who love dog's and like to read about dog sled racing. I think kids should read Stone Fox!!!

Stone Fox, more like Drunk Grandfather finds a Way to Swindle a Small Child into Making Money For Him.  Nov 17, 2007
I am disgusted with you that you are even considering the notion of ownership of this piece of literature. I am 28 years old, and this is the second book that I have read ever, first being Hop on Pop (which was AWESOME!!!), and I found it appalling that they allow this type of book on the market. Plot summary: Drunk grandfather refuses to get out of bed, and due to this, little Willy is forced to take on myriad problems that should not be forced upon such a young soul, including dealing with a 6-foot Alcoholic indian man with a shotgun and blood-thirsty wolf dogs, an un-tillable field, the death of his best friend and, of course, DEMOCRATS!
Children should not have to deal with the psycho-sematic problems that now plague me due to the off colour writing and poor emphasis on the deep rooted system of family values that is an integral part of this nation.
Reynolds is a Satanist. Stone Fox should be called Your Parents are Drunks, and You should Should Give Them Money that you Make By Killing Your Best Friend.
