Ellie's Story: A Dog's Purpose Novel by W. Bruce Cameron is a 2017 RICBA nominee. You may have heard of the bestseller A Dog's Purpose? Well, this is the same story, same author, but adapted for young readers. It is about a dog named Ellie, who becomes a search and rescue dog. The story is told from the point of view of the dog. I personally am not crazy about adaptations, and was a little disappointed by the writing in this book. What I can say positively is that the book does a great job informing the reader about the training that a search and rescue dog goes through to become good at their work. If you are crazy about dogs and curious about search and rescue dog training, you will love it.
