THE SHILOH TRILOGY

Shiloh trilogy Jun 10, 2008
I teach Year 6 (11 year olds) and read them the first book, Shiloh. They absolutely loved it and have been waiting excitedly as each student reads the next book in the trilogy to get their hands on them. Worth a read for children in this age group.
Shiloh Boxed Set Dec 30, 2007
My 10 year old sons love the first book. It's a tender story in which a young boy demonstrates compassion for a dog that is being mistreated. It has a nice ending and is easy for kids to read & understand. We are a family that loves sagas & trilogies. Books 2 & 3 promise to be just as good. My boys were super excited to get the set for Christmas. +VG57
The Shiloh Trilogy Mar 22, 2006
With the Shiloh Trilogy, Phillis Reynolds Naylor has crafted a trilogy that is on par with some of the finest trilogies ever put in print or on film and has joined a class with members like George Lucas and Peter Jackson. Simply put, the Shiloh Trilogy is the most brilliant book trilogy of all time.
Shiloh tells the story of a beagle puppy who was amused by its alcoholic owner so it ran away. A boy named...well I forget his name, but he found Shiloh and took care of him. Then the drunk guy wanted Shiloh back and there was this big fight. At the end Shiloh saves the day by biting the drunk guy's toes on one foot and then playing "this little piggy went to market" with his other foot.
In the second book, Shiloh Season, the boy is worried that the drunk guy will shoot Shiloh, so he writes his congressman a letter to try and prohibit the hunting season. The congressman says he has to get a petition with 100 signatures, so the boy sends a petition around town and tries to get people to sign it. At the end he gets 99 signatures but can't get the last one. Shiloh is sad and in the middle of the night dips his paw in ink and puts his pawprint on the last blank and saves the day.
Saving Shiloh is the third and final book. At the very start Shiloh falls off a very high cliff and the boy who owns Shiloh must run down the trail on the side of the cliff and get to the bottom to catch Shiloh before Shiloh goes splat. It's a fast-paced adventure that will get your heart racing.
I haven't read the books in a long time so some of that stuff may have been a little off, but the most of it is true. Definitely pick up this great series.

I love this book May 28, 2004
I love this book. I also love the sequils! I read the first one in fourth grade and I read the other two in the summer time. I thought all the books were sad espectially this one. judd is a rude selfish and absolutely unkind resident. I just feel so bad about what people in the book had to go through. he steels and lies and never bothers to help anyone! if you like the first book you'll like all of them!
