Top Ten Saddest Deaths In Children's Books

The Top Ten

Mog the cat? Dead? What? - WinchesterGirl26

2 Saul (Hetty Feather)
3 Charlotte (Charlotte's Web)
4 Dobby (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) Dobby (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows)

I read this in 3rd grade (along with Grimm's Fairy Tales and Secret Garden) at school. But seriously, the chapter Ginger dies is called "Poor Ginger."
