It’s Tommy’s turn to shed some tears! I thought all children read “Where The Red Fern Grows” in school. Well, it seems everyone did, except Tommy. He’d never read it! That lucky bastard. I remember reading this book out loud in the fifth grade, not a dry eye in the room. Then we had to watch the movie version! It was awful. Don’t get me wrong, “Where The Red Fern Grows” is a really good book, it’s just dark compared to other children’s books. I’ve been wanting to write this episode for a while, and I think it turned out great!
