About the Book



Young readers will learn all about the life of a search-and-rescue dog in this middle-grade novel by W. Bruce Cameron, the author of the New York Times bestselling A Dog's Purpose



Book Synopsis



From W. Bruce Cameron, the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling novel A Dog's Purpose, which is now a major motion picture!

Ellie's Story
is a heartwarming illustrated novel adapted for young readers from the beloved and New York Times bestselling A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron.

Ellie is a very special dog with a very important purpose. From puppyhood, Ellie has been trained as a search-and-rescue dog. She can track down a lost child in a forest or an injured victim under a fallen building. She finds people. She saves them. It's what she was meant to do.

But Ellie must do more. Her handlers--widowed Jakob, lonely Maya--need her too. People can be lost in many ways, and to do the job she was born to do, Ellie needs to find a way to save the people she loves best.

Ellie's Story is an inspiring tale for young animal lovers. Adorable black-and-white illustrations by Richard Cowdrey bring Ellie and her world to life. A discussion and activity guide at the end of the book will help promote family and classroom discussions about Ellie's Story and the insights it provides about humankind's best friends.

Winner of the 2017 Colorado Children's Book Award for Junior Novel and the Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award



Review Quotes



"Ellie's view of the world is spot-on, feeling just like the thoughts dogs must have, particularly her disdain for cats (not worth training) and her anxious concern for people who aren't busy playing with her ('It was too bad. They had nothing to do'). Additional information on how search and rescue dogs are selected and trained is appended. A satisfying and illuminating tale." --Kirkus Reviews on Ellie's Story

"Readers will devour this wonderful story and cry from beginning to end. Sweet and heartfelt, Cameron likely has another bestseller on his hands." --Publishers Weekly, starred review on A Dog's Journey

"Once again endearing himself to animal lovers, Cameron explores the concept of canine karma with acute sensitivity and exhibits cunning insight into life from a dog's perspective." --Booklist on A Dog's Journey

"An amazing book." --Alice Walker, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Color Purple on A Dog's Purpose

"I loved the book and I could not put it down." --Temple Grandin, New York Times bestselling author of Animals in Translation on A Dog's Purpose
