Ellie's Story is a heartwarming illustrated novel for young readers inspired by the New York Times bestselling A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron.
Every dog has work to do. Every dog has a purpose.
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.
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.
