    I think the other books I listed are around $5 each, maybe cheaper. and probably in the childrens or teenager section.
    yeah, the movie is NEVER as good as the book. in some ways the lor of the rings trilogy was as good, and in a few small ways it was better, but all in all the book was far better.

    I thought Call of the Wild was equal to the book I read the book before the I saw the movie and the movie is extremly acurate i love it.

    with call of the wild it depends, there have been atleast a dozen versions of that movie. which one did you like? I thought the best was the one with rick schroeder, and a german shepherd played Buck. even though buck was supposed to be half english shepherd, and I think half st bernard? heres an english shepherd...

    It was the Newest from Hallmark the dog was actually a Shepherd/St Bernard mix and everything it was very true to the book Curly though looked like a border collie mix in that movie. I forget the guy who played John Thortan but he's an awsome actor I forget his name but I know the face.

    I've watched My dog skip, where the red fern grows, and beethoven

    My dog skip: meh, I am not going to watch it again

    Where the red Fern grows: The book is much better than the movie

    Beethoven: too kiddy for me and I was in 3rd grade when I watched it
