A Dog's Purpose

by Cameron, W Bruce

 A Dog's Purpose is a 2010 novel by humorist W. Bruce Cameron. The story of a dog, born feral, then reincarnated into multiple breeds over multiple lives and living with numerous owners, is a story of loyalty and unconditional love epitomized by the relationship dogs have with humans. The novel spent nearly a year on the New York Times best-seller list, and has been made into a movie. A sequel, the Dog's Journey, was published in 2012, and a Christmas book The Dogs of Christmas was released in 2013. A film of the same name, with a script written by the author and his wife, Cathryn Michon, was released in 2017.

This book was absolutely incredible! It is all told from the perspective of a dog. It gave me some insight to how my dog might be thinking when he does certain things. Extremely enjoyable and laugh out loud funny!

I'm a school librarian and I would recommend this book to 5th grade and above. It was excellent! It will make you laugh and cry. This book is told from the view point of a dog and will draw you into his journey. A must for any library!
