Synopses & Reviews
Ellies Story is a heartwarming illustrated novel adapted for young readers from the beloved and New York Times bestselling A Dogs 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. Its 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.
Ellies 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 Ellies Story and the insights it provides about humankinds best friends.
