Winterdance is filled with adventure and fun. I enjoy novels about sports and animals. Some of my favorite books are The Contender and Where The Red Fern Grows this book is up there with them. I found it very funny. It deals with Gary Pulsen description of preparing and running the Iditarod.
The story starts out with Paulsen and his favorite dog, Cookie. Paulsen describes his search for dogs and training them and himself for the iditarod. Along the way he finds some interesting ways of doing this. Paulsen ends up hitting a lot of tress while being dragged by his dogs, and that's just the beginning. The race tended to be even funnier.
Winterdance kept my interest in different ways. It was hilarious and I always wanted to find out what happened next. Paulsen was in the middle of the race when the snow picked up. The next thing he knew he was in the middle of the snowstorm. He went in his sleeping bag. When he woke up the next morning, Paulsen found out that he was covered in snow. When he stood up to go to the bathroom, he was surprised and you will be too. I think Winterdance would be a good book for anyone into adventure books with lots and lots of laughs.
