A moving story of joy and heartbreak from former Children’s Laureate Michael Morpurgo. When Patrick saves a litter of greyhound puppies from the canal, he keeps a special one: Best Mate. Best Mate can run like a speeding bullet, a cheetah-dog. But when he is kidnapped and turned into a champion racer, what will happen when Best Mate can’t run any more? This compelling new book from Michael Morpurgo is a Black Beauty for today’s readers: a book of joy and heartbreak, perseverance and courage, which explores the whole range of human and animal emotion. A real page-turner from a champion author, it will make every reader’s heart race.
