When a novel like Huckleberry Finn, or The Yearling, comes along it defies customary adjectives because of the intensity of the respouse it evokes in the reader.

5.0 Old Yeller
Yes, I read it when I was young. There is an industry rule in Hollywood that you can never kill the dog. Is it in honor of Old Yeller?What I also find frightening is that there is an entire industry of teacher guides for teaching Old Yeller. Is it like counselors for lost dogs?

3.0 Old Yeller
