BOOK: A Dog's Journey
EDITOR: W. Bruce Cameron
PUBLISHER: Pan Macmillan
RRP:  $19.99

THIS is a modern day parable told to us through the eyes of dogs.

It is the sequel to A Dog's Purpose (soon to be a film).

There are many lessons taught in this charming story with the chief one being do we take care of our pets, or do they take care of us?

Buddy is a good dog who has lived several lives in search of his purpose.

Just when he thinks he has fulfilled it he realises his old owner's granddaughter, Clarity, is his new purpose.

This is a touching tale of teenage angst and the journey to adulthood.
