The Incredible Journey by Sheila Burnford
'Only one thing was clear and certain - that at all costs he was going home, home to his own beloved master...' The Hunter children must go abroad for the summer, so they reluctantly leave their three pets in the care of a friend. But the faithful animals only know they must get home again, somehow. So the labrador, the old bull terrier and the dainty Siamese cat set off on a perilous journey through the wilderness. But how will domestic animals fare against river rapids, hunger, icy temperatures and ferocious wild beasts? And if they make it home, will their owners be waiting for them?

As I read The Incredible Journey I felt as if I were traveling along with a Labrador, bull terrier and a Siamese cat through the Canadian wilderness. When the animals got lost from home, they suffered through hunger, freezing weather, Indians and ferocious animals. After many struggles and separations, the animals found their way home to the loving arms of their owners. I enjoyed the adventure these animals took me on in this incredible story. -- Jessica, aged 8 Los Angeles Times
