I like the book because it is a true story about a dog who didn't give up. This book is exciting. I didn't stop once while I was reading this book. This book made me have many questions when I was reading, I was wondering whether Balto got to Nome in time or was it too late for him to save the children. How many animals are able to lead their group in such hard conditions? My favorite part of the book is that they put up a monument of Balto in New York City's Central Park, in 1926. I thought it was special that they built a monument in New York City! This showed that the whole country appreciated Balto for his efforts.
I recommend this book to any person that likes dogs. If you read this book, you will like it, because it is the true story of the dog who made history. I would also recommend this book to people who live in Alaska. The story took place in Alaska and since it is a true story, they will like it.
