Born to Run is one of the many treasured classics of Micheal Morpurgo. I have read this book along with my class over a year ago and I loved it!
When Best Mate, a young puppy, is saved along with his siblings by a young boy called Patrick, his life starts to light up- especially when Patrick adopts him! But when Best Mate is kidnapped, his life takes an exciting turn. Full of excitement, fear, sadness, friendship,love, drama and loss, Best Mate’s life is always -whether good or bad. But will he ever be reunited with Patrick?
This is a great book, but I find it a bit boring and there are lots of tragedies. It is written in a lovely way, however. I rate this four stars.
