My favorite character in Old Yeller is Little Arliss. Little Arliss is my favorite character because he brings a little bit of comedy into the story. He throws rocks when he gets mad and tells many lies, so I can relate to him a little.
Favorite Part of the Book
My favorite part of the book is after Old Yeller fights the rabid wolf to protect the family and Travis is forced to shoot him because of the disease Old Yeller caught when he got bitten. This is my favorite part of the book because it is the most devastating and tragic part in the book, making the reader feel for Travis and Old Yeller.
The theme of Old Yeller is the meaning of adulthood and a boys passage into adulthood.
The climax of Old Yeller is when Old Yeller fights a wolf who had rabies and he got bit. Travis had to decide whether to shoot Old Yeller or to wait and see if he actually got rabies. Travis couldn't put his family in that much danger so he had to shoot and kill Old Yeller.
The resolution of Old Yeller is when Lisbeth gives Travis a another dog. After shooting Old Yeller he realizes that the puppy is just a smaller version of Old Yeller when he steals Momma's cornbread.
