When 11-year-old Marty Preston chances upon a mistreated beagle pup in his hometown of Friendly, West Virginia, he is not prepared for the ethical questions he has to face. Should he return the dog to its owner, only to have the animal abused again? Should he tell his parents? Should he steal food to help the poor creature? Marty's efforts to cope with these questions provides the moral backbone for this story, which is presented in a language and manner that will be understood by third- and fourth-grade readers. The heart and beauty of this 1992 Newbery Medal winner lies in lessons children will take away with them. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
From Publishers Weekly
In the tradition of Sounder and Where the Red Fern Grows comes this boy-and-his-dog story set in rural West Virginia. When he finds a mistreated beagle pup, 11-year-old Marty knows that the animal should be returned to its rightful owner. But he also realizes that the dog will only be further abused. So he doesn't tell his parents about his discovery, sneaks food for the dog and gets himself into a moral dilemma in trying to do the right thing. Without breaking new ground, Marty's tale is well told, with a strong emphasis on family and religious values. This heartwarming novel should win new fans for the popular Naylor. Ages 8-12.

Marty and his father return Shiloh to Judd Travers, but the dog runs away again and Marty keeps him hidden. Under Marty's care, Shiloh is attacked by a large German Shepherd and very seriously hurt. In order to save Shiloh's life, Marty and his father rush the doctor to a vet and pay the doctor. The dog will live, but it will have a limp. Nevertheless, Judd wants the dog back. Marty offers to buy the dog, but Judd won't sell.
More tension is added to this already-tense situation when Marty observes Judd breaking the law. But in a beautiful twist, showing that people are more complex than they appear on the surface, the author turns the story toward resolution and a happy but very realistic ending. Highly Recommended!
