another exciting story of a boy and his dog May 12, 2006
Jim Kjelgarrd writes exciting outdoor adventures for young people. The heroes are always very independent and self-sufficient. Alan and his father ran a hunting lodge until his father was sent to prison for a fight with an obnoxious client. Alan holds down the fort while his father is gone. There is a feud with a clan of nasty neighbors, who have cut off the wildlife runway that brought business to the hunting camp. What Alan has to go through at the hands of his father's enemies is really upsetting. I find the books where the young hero has to fight bears less disturbing than the ones where human enemies try to ruin the heroes life. It's too much like real life! Alan, who has no hunting dog, rescues a great retriever who has been shot. It takes work to win the dog's trust, but like all of Kjelgaard's heroes, Alan proves worthy. Adding to the conflict is that the dog is an outlaw, accused of being rabid and attacking his owner. Then Alan finds himself an outlaw too! Loads of suspense and adventure, and lots of lessons about life. It's not an easy world out there, but by being a straight shooter and stoic, Alan and Stormy tough it out!
Kim Kjelgaard does it again! Jul 20, 2002
Okay, so it's not a classic like Big Red, but who says classics have to be better? This book shows Jim Kjelgaard's talent as a writer and how you can take popular subjects into a book unique and different from every book about dogs out there. As a young child, I was a bookworm, but as I'm getting older, reading books isn't such a joy anymore. I knew I had to have this book though. It striked me as a book everyone needs to read, which it is. I read it in about a week because I couldn't put it down! It's a flawless triumph that gets right down to the bottom of your heart where the emotions rise until youre crying of joy. Once again, Jim Kjelgaard creates a fabulous book everyone is sure to love!
Stormy May 28, 2002
I thought this book was ok. This book is about a boy named Allan. He lives alone because his dad is in jail. When Allan is out he finds a over sized dog. He calls the dog stormy. The dog he finds is a Black Lab. He has a gun shot wone for on his side. Allan brings the dog to his house and takes the bullet wone out of the Stormy. Stormy and Allan start coming around and helping each other out. Allan helps stormy out by when Stormy was trying to get a dead duck on ice. Stormy falls in the ice called water and Allan goes on his boat and saves Stormy. Stormy also helps out Allan when he was hunting. He helped him get food. When Allan finds out that stormy is a out law dog, he hides Stormy so no one will take him away from him. When Allan was going to his house he fnds Bob Tournse dead. Then Allan goes to his dad and asked what to do. He said to go to the other side of the river and stay their for a few nights. Then they find Allan and they wanted to warn him about the big storm that was coming up. They said they found the person who killed Bob Tourance. Allan showed them Stormy and Allan said that Stormy was a very good dog. hen the went back to town. I thought this book was ok. This book I read did not have lots of exciting parts in it.
Stormy May 28, 2002
Stormy is a book about a boy who finds a stray dog and keeps him. This dog was known for having rabbis and hurting people but since Allan found him he suddenly became nice. The book didn't seem so realistic. The author Jim Kjelgaard had a good idea but he could have made a boy and a stray dog go through different but better adventures. The author brought a dog into this book and the title of this book is named after the dog. The dog didn't do anything or make a difference in this book. That is my opinion of Stormy.

Stormy was a good book. I liked it because I like books with dogs in them, also murders. When stormy went across the ice I knew that was going to be a good part. Also when Bob Torrance died that was a good part. I knew these parts were going to be good because of the author's style of writing. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes dogs, hunting and murders.
