Comments taken from site:
“This is a very well written story. Colin Fizzell, keeps you interested in the plot, all the time making you think, and then “BAM”, a very interesting twist.
I enjoyed this story very much. Well worth reading.”
“This was a wonderful short story! Some of the negative comments I have read obviously come from readers who do not teach literature . . . This is an excellent inroduction to the Middle School student. Plus, the story is a terrific tool for teaching symbolism, stereotype, characterization, conflict, and most especially inference. Inference is can be a very difficult thing to “get across” to students and Colin makes that entirely possible with “Prairie Dogs.” I give this short story an A++!!! Thank you for your talent, I enjoyed it thoroughly! Sincerely Yours, An appreciative teacher of 8th grade Media Literacy.”
“The story left me with a feeling that I was riding in the other side of the same coach as Bill and his friend. The expressions that fleeted across Bill’ s drew me like a magnet.This is a gripping story.”
