In The Underneath by Kathi Appelt, Ranger is a bloodhound that was abused by a cruel man named Gar Face. I don’t recommend this to fourth graders because it has cruelty to animals. Some fifth and sixth graders might be able to read it. A cat comes to the underneath and has kittens. The momma cat was drowned by Gar Face. A kitten was lost and the other cat is with Ranger. One time I was reading it and pictured my pets in such a cruel place. Did the stranded cat come home? Was Ranger saved by the cats? Find out in THE UNDERNEATH.
