That you are under no doubt what happens to the poor dogs I felt this was worth mentioning as many people will find this uite upsetting to read It was in fact an article in a newspaper about this practice that prompted the author to write the book in the first place He had a rescue dog himself which prompted him into thinking about the ife story of a greyhoundThe book also has a really good section at the back which will appeal to dog Fitness for Geeks: Real Science, Great Nutrition, and Good Health lovers There is a bit by the author about why he wrote the book information about the retired greyhound trust a fun uiz to find out what kind of dog you are mostike information on animal charities interesting dog facts famous dogs most common dog names and how you can get involved in helping dogs Another ittle touch I iked is that at the bottom right of each page throughout the book is a Cause Of Fear little picture of Best Mate and if you flip through the pages it makes him run There are illustrations throughout the book and aovely photo of a retired greyhound on the front coverSo in summary this is an emotive account about a greyhound who has a ot of difficulties thrown at him but great character and oyalty to the end It is a story that will appeal dog The Game of Love lovers but isn t really suitable for young children If you are going to give it to a child be warned they will probably want a dog after reading it if they didn t before My friend recommended this book to me and I didn t have high expectations But it was amazing I recommend this to anyone who wants a short but emotional read Its a touching story about a greyhound who had many differentives He was saved from a canal with the rest of his siblings and kept by the rescuer He was dognapped attacked and eft on his own to fend for himself will he ever find a true homeI recommend this book to younger aged children and animal oversI really iked this story because it s heartwarming and has very good composition it draws you into the story and you don t want to put the book down as it s full of suprisesThe only thing i disliked about the story was that it was easily predictable in some places of the storyOverall i really enjoyed reading this book Doing the reading river activity for uni really took me back to

This touching book shows a Young Dogs Hard Life From dogs hard ife #From rescued from a pond to iving on the streets even the toughest #rescued from a pond to The Lady in Pink living on the streets even the toughest reader may need a box of tissues beside them This is aovely book and as I ve mentioned is very touching I would recommend this book to a young ish audience around 11 12 year olds would enjoy this but I think older teens 14ish may also enjoy this book I know I Eyes loved it This is a charming story about the differentives of one dog Born to run by Micheal Morpugo is a story about the ife of a greyhound and the experiences he encounters The book is I would probably guess aimed at young teenagers However any dog over will Sinner's Heart love this tale of a greyhound who has three different and very contrasting owners for the duration of this novel The story begins with Patrick a young boy who whilst walking on his way to school sees a bag floating in the canal which seems to be moving Without any concern for his own safety he jumps into the canal and gets the bag onto dryand where he discovers the bag is full of ittle greyhound pups He becomes a hero in his school and after much deliberation on his parent s side they allow him to keep one of the puppies who he names Best Mate parent s side they allow him to keep one of the puppies who he names Best Mate that is exactly what they become unseparable enjoying each others company What Best Mate oves to do is run and Patrick and him Spirit of the Wolf love to run in the parkHowever one day something happens to change all that and Patrick and Best Mate become separated Best Mate begins a newife as a racing dog and becomes called Bright Eyes in this new A Vineyard Christmas life he meets new friends Alfie another greyhound and Becky a young girl whoives at the kennels Although Best Mate or Bright Eyes as he is now called misses Patrick he settles into his new Een Bijzondere Vorm Van Osteosclerose life and becomes a champion racing greyhoundLife for Best Mate however seems always set to change and due to various circumstances he finds that he is without a home and is then taken in by Joe who runs a baked potato van and he names the dog Paddywack and so begins another chapter in Best MatesifeI thought this was a ovely book It is uite clearly written for children yet it still has an appeal to an older reader if you ove dog stories The book has 240 pages but the font used is so easily readable that it s uite possible to read the whole book in an evening The story is very charming and the characters are arger than ife Be warned that despite this book being a child s book it may have you in tears There are some very sad moments This book isn t really suitable for young children it tackles some serious issues one being children running away and the other that sometimes racing greyhounds are shot when they become too old or injured to run This was a topic that I did not expect to find in this book but the author describes in clear detail. For Best Mate being rescued from drowning as a young puppy is only the start of his. .
Summary Born To Run.
Life and that your friends are always there to help you But sometimes one point in your ife you must Math Basics 6 leave your oldife and friends behind and find new friends I think this book Really Illustrates Well That Part Of Life illustrates well that part of Voyage to the Underworld (Star Wars Missions, life your mustet go of your old comfortable The First Ghost life and find a newife This book is very fast paced It rattles along with barely a paragraph or chapter in sight I guess that is to keep children interested It ooks ike a book for young children with wide Simple Numbers, Straight Talk, Big Profits!: 4 Keys to Unlock Your Business Potential line spacing and illustrations But I found the content to be very adult for the style of the book There was animal abuse parents dying nasty step parents children running away homelessness violence Maybe I m just old fashioned and don t expect to find those issues covered in a book thatooks ike it s aimed at early readers Maybe kids are tougher than they used to be and are used to this kind of stuff For me though this book was caught a bit in between the age groups it was written for The content is extremely emotive but the pace of the book and writing style took away some of the impact of eventsThe parts of the book written from a dog s eye view were a nice idea and made a good bridge for sudden shifts in the story But for me they didn t uite ring true The perpective was too human it didn t sound ike a dog talking Overall it was a decent read It s an emotional roller coaster with both nasty and kind people displayed by how they treat the dog But I d rather either see some of the nasty bits taken out to make it suitable for smaller children or see them covered carefully for maximum impact on a teenageadult audience THIS BOOKAs you can see I am struggling for wordsThis book is absolutely gorgeous Strong themes of friendship family and oyalty Read it Love it Cry Cry again Then read all of Michael Morpurgo s other books ALL OF THEMThis Had Always THEMThis had always one of my top favourite Michael Morpurgo books when I read them a good few years ago so I was skeptical and to be honest scared that I wouldn t ove it as much if I reread it now But wow I was wrong This Book I can t even form well structured sentences This book has given me the reassurance that no one is ever too old for one of Morpurgo s timeless gems I Smokin' Hot look forward to rereading all of Morpurgo s other gorgeous books now and in many years to come I need to clarify that this 5 rating is certainly not for the nostalgia of this reread Sure I wouldn t have picked up this book now if I hadn toved the author and book previously but that does not mean in any way that my rating is biased Born to Run has a simplistic beauty to it s writing heart wrenching and emotional storylines and the most Placing Memory lovable and precious characters I dare someone not to fall inove with this book If you give Born to Run a chance you will never ever regret Dog this remarkable greyhound proves that it's not just cats who have than one ife.
