Inspired by the New York Times and USA Today bestselling novel A Dog’s Way Home by W. Bruce Cameron, now a major motion picture!

Bella loves her boy, Lucas, who rescued her from an abandoned building. Even though she has to hide from the neighbors and learn boring games like No Barks and Go Home, there is nowhere she’d rather be than by Lucas’ side. Then one day Bella is picked up byh animal control, and Lucas is forced to send her to a foster home far away.

Bella waits and waits for Lucas to come and get her, but days go by and he does not come. Finally, she realizes what she needs to do – she must Go Home to Lucas – and even four hundred miles of dangerous Colorado wilderness won’t get in her way.

Bella’s Story is a young reader version of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling novel A Dog’s Way Home by W. Bruce Cameron, which was made into a major motion picture from Sony Pictures. Includes heartwarming illustrations by Richard Cowdrey and a reading and discussion guide at the end of the book.

What I liked:
One of the things I like most about W. Bruce Cameron's Puppy Tales series is that he writes these books for children with great respect. He never talks down to children. Instead, he takes the best part of his adult novels about dogs and tells the stories with heart in a way suitable for younger readers. Based on A Dog's Way Home, Bella's Story has the same soul as the previous books and all the cheer-worthy content.
Final Verdict:
Bella's Story echoes the incredible journey movies where a pet makes an impossible, dangerous journey to return to the owners they love. In addition, the book includes an age-appropriate discussion guide at the end of the book, which includes discussion questions, activities, and even thoughts on reading it in a classroom setting.
