Little Britches

A good contrast with Little Women. Ralph is devilish and brave. Very obvious right and wrongs through the book. An entertaining story. Such a sad ending- why so much death in the last few chapters? Maybe to prepare children for the death of loved things as they grow. His father's death confirms his transformation from boy to man. I loved the characters in this story, especially Two Dog. A great book for a boy.
