Shiloh by Phyllis Naylor Book Review


Shiloh by Phyllis Naylor

Goodreads Summary:

When Marty Preston comes across a young beagle in the hills behind his home, it’s love at first sight9 and also big trouble. It turns out the dog, which Marty names Shiloh belongs to Judd Travers who drinks too much and has a gun9 and abuses his dogs. So when Shiloh runs away from Judd to Marty, Marty just has to hide him and protect him from Judd. But Marty’s secret becomes too big for him to keep to himself, and it exposes his entire family to Judd’s anger. How far will Marty have to go to make Shiloh his?

My Thoughts:

First of all, here’s another book that I can’t believe I’ve never read until now! 🙂

Shiloh has stolen my heart. Marty has stolen my heart. And the 2nd book is in my classroom, and the 3rd book is checked out by a student. Sad face.

I’m not sure if I’ve ever read a book that had such a kindhearted character like Marty. Lots for kids to learn from him. Even with the lies that he ends up telling, he lets you in on his guilt which confirms that lying isn’t a good thing.

I can’t wait to read the next two books in this trilogy!

5 out of 5 stars

    • Dawn,

      I bet you ARE a little biased! 🙂 I want to finish out the trilogy-one of my 6th grade boys just finished the last one. He loved all three!

    • Savanna,

      YAY for you! I always love books about animals. Have you read Because of Winn Dixie? That’s another favorite of mine about a dog! 🙂

I love hearing from you. Let's have a conversation!
