Book- Born To Run by Michael Morpurgo

This is a charming story about the different lives one dog faces.
“Born to run" by Michael Morpurgo is a story about the life of a greyhound and the experiences he encounters. The book is aimed at young teenagers. However, any dog lover will love this tale of a greyhound that has three different (and very contrasting) owners for the duration of this great book.
The story begins with Patrick a young boy who was on his way to school and sees a bag floating in the canal which seems to be moving. Without any worry for his own safety he jumps into the canal and gets the bag onto dry land where he discovers the bag is full of little greyhound pups. He becomes a hero in his school and after much persuading with his parent's they allow him to keep one of the puppies who he names Best Mate. And that is exactly what they become, best mates, inseparable enjoying each other’s company. However, one day something happens to change all that and Patrick and Best Mate become separated.

I read this when I was quite young at 8-9yrs of age as I was a child who liked to challenge myself in my reading. I found it absolutely brilliant and I was hooked the moment I started, it was my favourite book then and it still is now. It is very heart warming and touching with some sad moments. I think that we can agree that not only the kids, but the adults and animal lovers will absolutely love this book.
