Bailey's Story is a heartwarming illustrated novel adapted for young readers from the beloved and New York Times bestselling A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron.

Every dog has work to do. Every dog has a purpose.

When Bailey meets eight-year-old Ethan, he quickly figures out his purpose: to play with the boy, to explore the Farm during summers with the boy, and to tidy the boy's dishes by licking them clean (only when Mom isn't watching). But Bailey soon learns that life isn't always so simple--that sometimes bad things happen--and that there can be no greater purpose than to protect the boy he loves.

Bailey's Story is a moving tale about a dog and his boy for young animal lovers by W. Bruce Cameron, bestselling author of the acclaimed novel A Dog's Purpose . Adorable black-and-white illustrations by Richard Cowdrey bring Bailey and his world to life. A discussion and activity guide at the end of the book will help promote family and classroom discussions about Bailey's Story and the insights it provides about humankind's best friends.

Cameron certainly has a gift for seeing the world from a dog's eyes! A quick read that would be perfect for dog lovers. Suitable for grades 3-7.

This is about a dog named Bailey who meets a boy named Ethan and they become best friends. They spend every minute together and while Ethan grows up into a teenager,Bailey becomes more attached to him but Ethan becomes less attached. It's a great book you should totally read it.

I bought this book at Barnes and Nobles with another book, Almost Home, and I read this one first. It was an amazing, thrilling, exciting, sad, and a scary adventure! Bailey was the best dog anyone could have and I wish I could have a dog like him. It's kind of odd about a male dog that's named Bailey, I will admit that. But this is a heartwarming story for ages 9 & up. Ethan is a boy with a big heart that can make stupid decisions. Some parts made me cry, but, I'm not a spoiler, so, you'll have to read the book. But I will say that I'm glad the author didn't include anyone dyeing-animal or human.
