Have you ever found a dog? A boy named Marty finds a scared dog on the road. At first, the dog would not let Marty approach. Then Marty tried whistling. It worked! The dog let Marty approach, and he now had a new secret. He was going to keep the dog. But the next day Judd, the person who owns the dog, visits. He kicks his dog. Marty wants to protect the dog, now named Shiloh, from the owner he used to have. Will he succeed?

Shiloh was, for me, the best book in the world! I like the way the author wrote this book because he describes things very well. He describes Judd so that the reader knows everything the reader needs to know. One of the things the author talks about is that Judd is mean. Then he gives the example that Judd kicked his dogs, and that was why he was mean.

I think everyone should read this book because it was so much fun to read and there are many different exciting parts. I think you’ll love it!!! One of the exciting parts of this book is when Marty finds a dog in the street and decides to keep him. It’s exciting because you don’t find a dog just standing there every day!!! I like this book because if you are an adventurous and dog-loving person, you are in for the best book you have ever read!
