We finished reading Stone Fox. So I want to make sure that the students who have been reading the novel have the opportunity to finish it--PLEASE be aware that the last chapter is shocking with the death of Searchlight--I suggest you read it together. The larger question we discussed: Was Searchlight's death worth saving the farm? (the kids all said NO!!!) Also, we talked about the role of the protagonist and antagonist and contemplated if characters can change roles in a story--especially Stone Fox.
