    1. I read his book when I was about 11 years old. Now I'm 33 and I still remember this book. I loved the descriptions of the animals and he way the author put you in the mind of the animal.


    2. The first few chapters are alternating, with one focusing on Star (the fox), and then the next one on Jack and his dog Thunder. After that, Star gets a much more prominent role in the book, with only parts of a chapter (or sometimes none at all) focusing on Jack or other humans.What's also nice is that you sometimes get to read things twice: from Star's point-of-view, and from someone else's. The timelines you read twice are short, it's not like you're reading whole chapters again, so it doesn't [...]


    3. This book was the most beautiful book I have ever read. It was my favorite book for a long time, and I have read it over 100 times, at least and would gladly read it again, if I could only get a copy! The story was so true to life and so well spoken that I could see every bit of Star's life as if I were there. This is the style I try to emulate in my own writing. I was so enthralled with the book when I first read it that I even know what day I finished reading it- my 6th birthday, August 14, 19 [...]


    4. One of my favorite Jim Kjelgaard books, mixing the world of the wild with the world of men in equal doses and importance. Dade is an unlovely but realistic character, who lives off the land but contributes nothing to it. The parallel tale of the growing boy and his foxhound, and the fox exacting mischief and revenge, is timelessly enchanting. Glad I rediscovered it in the "Kids Section".


    5. Okay, so I was a kid when I read this book. It's about a mysterious fox who haunts the land, blah blah blah. Well, in any case, it's one of the few books I remember from my very young youth. I even made a fox statue for a project out of homemade playdough. Wow. The good old days.


    6. I read and enjoyed most of Kjelgaard's dog/hunter/tracker stories as a kid, but only kept three. Haunt Fox made the cut because it's told almost entirely from the fox's perspective. A great animal-adventure story.


    7. Kjelgaard was one of my favorite authors growing up and his books certainly shaped me and my writing. Reading his young adult novels now isn't quite as much fun as it used to be, but he still tells a good story with a lot of good moral lessons included, although not in any preachy kind of way.


    8. When I was in middle school I searched for everything written by Jim Kjelgaard. I made my parents scour used book stores for his works that were out of print. I was (and still am) an animal lover. I wanted to be friends with the dogs this author wrote about.


    9. I liked Jim Kjelgaard's book as a kid, and this was probably my favorite. It instilled an early love of stories about chases and hunts and creative escapes.



    10. Read this book for the firs time when I was just a kid in elementary school. It was one of the first "real" books that I read. I loved it then, and I still love it now.



    11. This book began my obsession with this author He writes from the animal's viewpoint. I made Dad drag me up to Waldenbooks in Lincoln Park I dunno how many times to get the books on order.
