This book is about a little boy called patrick and his greyhound dog called Best Mate. It mostly shows and tells us about the relationship he has towards his pet.
The boy Patrick has such a strong bond with his dog as he feels he can tell him anything and never wants to leave his side. The boy is fearful about his step dad's behaviour towards his dogs.
In my opinion I think this book is really good as it makes you create an image of what it looks like and helps you understand his point and why he feels the way he does. I think what makes this book so enjoyable and gives an effect on the reader is the fact that the writer went into depth on how the boy feels. Reading this book made me upset as the boy has been through a lot in his life.
