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.
“Pitch perfect… this hardened book reviewer kept having to wipe away the tears.” Daily Mail

Lexiles are the global standard in reading assessment. They are unique as
they are able to measure a child and a book on the same scale – ensuring
the right book gets to the right child at the right time.
