In a nutshell: satisfying and exciting story of a rescue dog’s life | In this short novel, children get a dog’s eye view of the world as the story is narrated by rescue dog Ellie, from first days as a puppy through her special training to her career finding missing people - those who have got lost, one who has been kidnapped, and most dramatically one she saves after an earthquake. It makes for a fascinating story and Ellie’s voice is completely convincing: we understand, though she doesn’t, why her first owner Jakob cries at his wife’s grave; she makes us feel her contempt for cats! An excellent animal story this will thoroughly appeal to readers of classics such as The Incredible Journey as well as more recent stories such as Shadow by Michael Morpurgo. ~ Andrea Reece

From puppyhood, Ellie has been trained as a search-and-rescue dog. She can track down a lost child in a forest or an injured victim under a fallen building. She finds people. She saves them. It's what she was meant to do. But Ellie must do more. Her handlers - widowed Jakob, lonely Maya - need her too. People can be lost in many ways, and to do the job she was born to do Ellie needs to find a way to save the people she loves best.
