    W. BRUCE CAMERON is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of A Dog's Purpose, A Dog's Journey, The Dog Master, The Dogs of Christmas, and The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man. He lives in California.

    A Dog’s Purpose—the #1 New York Times bestseller—is heading to the big screen! Based on the beloved bestselling novel by W. Bruce Cameron, A Dog’s Purpose, from director Lasse Hallstrom (The Cider House Rules, Dear John, The 100-Foot Journey), shares the soulful and surprising story of one devoted dog (voiced by Josh Gad) who finds the meaning of his own existence through the lives of the humans he teaches to laugh and love. The family film told from the dog’s perspective also stars Britt Robertson, KJ Apa, John Ortiz, Peggy Lipton, Juliet Rylance, Luke Kirby, Pooch Hall and Dennis Quaid. A Dog’s Purpose is produced by Gavin Polone (Zombieland, TV’s Gilmore Girls). The film from Amblin Entertainment and Walden Media will be distributed by Universal Pictures. Screenplay by W. Bruce Cameron & Cathryn Michon and Audrey Wells and Maya Forbes & Wally Wolodarsky.

    Heartwarming, insightful, and often laugh-out-loud funny, A Dog's Purpose is not only the emotional and hilarious story of a dog's many lives, but also a dog's-eye commentary on human relationships and the unbreakable bonds between man and man's best friend. This moving and beautifully crafted story teaches us that love never dies, that our true friends are always with us, and that every creature on earth is born with a purpose.

    Bailey's story continues in A Dog's Journey, the charming New York Times and USA Today bestselling direct sequel to A Dog's Purpose.

      This is a wonderful story about one dog who is reborn multiple times as a different puppy who fulfills many purposes but ultimately seeks his hihgest purpose. It is a warm and inspirational story that is often funny and sometimes even sad. It's entertaining to hear the story told from the dog's point of view and his unique take on the world as he discovers new things and how they're perceived by a dog. Some of the passages are hilarious as the dog describes his confusion when his owner isn't training him consistently... truly educational and enlightening for anyone trying to train a dog. So that's what they must be thinking if we do it wrong! Don't miss this book if you're a dog lover!
