What we thought

We thought the story had a good work ethic. It showed us if you work and work, you will achieve what you want to achieve. Billy worked and worked to get money for his dogs. Then he worked with his dogs and trained them to be the best coon hunting dogs around.

Literary devices.

Grandpa says your like Daniel Boone to Billy.

The red head bully looked like a cherry since he was so mad.

They make a reference that the ghost coon is invisible because he's there but then suddenly dissapears.
