 'Born To Run' is a story written by Michael Morpurgo.It is illustrated by Michael Foreman.It was first published in hardback in Great Britain by HarperCollins Children's Books 2007.HarperCollins Children's Books is a division of HarperCollins Publishers ltd.This book was printed and bound by CPI Group (UK) Ltd.This story is a tribute to Simon,Alison,Rose,Amy,Hazel and Otto by the author Michael Morpurgo.

This is the story of one dog which is a Greyhound.There was a boy named Patrick.He studied in St Thomas' Junior School on Porthcressa Road.He always walked to school along a canal, past the brown sauce factory which somehow smelled both sweet and sour at the same time.His head teacher was Mrs Brightwell who had angry at the tip of her nose.She always shouts at Patrick for being untidy or running in the corridors or day-dreaming or using the word 'whatever', which he most probably used. Mrs Brightwell also hates excuses.

One day when he was going to school,on the towpath there was a swan which usually blocked his way to school.He tried to shoo it away but it didn't .Suddenly he heard a squeaking of puppies.He looked around and then saw a sack in the canal.It was not just floating but as if it was being propelled from inside.So,he thought that something must be there and he removed his schoolbag and jumped to the canal.He swam and saved it.The water was almost cold enough.At the towpath,there was Mr.Boots who was a lollipop man.He was waiting for Patrick to come.After reaching the bank of the river,when they opened the sack they saw five greyhound puppies.When he reached school with the puppies in the sack along with Mr.Boots, Mrs Brightwell was in the assembly area along with the children of the whole school.Mr.Boots told the whole thing happened, to Mrs Brightwell. She appreciated him and also the children too.After all the applause was over and assembly was dismissed,he looked into the sack and only one puppy was so cute that with cute eyes.He asked his parents that can he keep this one puppy as his pet. After so many restrictions they allowed him to.He was so happy and he named it as 'Best Mate'. He started taking Best Mate to the park every evening.Best Mate used to run after other dogs and children in the park.He ran across the bank of the river and also watch the duck and swan swimming in the river.One day when he gone for the rounds,Best Mate didn't came back.Patrick thought that he would come after half an hour,but he didn't.He complained to Police Station.They searched for him everywhere but didn't get him.After that...Best Mate became Brighteyes and then Paddywack. Read the story and find out !

When I was reading I was very curious to know what will be happening next.There will be more anxiety as you read. My friend Archana suggested me this book as she love dogs the most.She is a dog lover.

I thank her for suggesting this book.Such a wonderful book.I loved this book very much.Super story.This is a wonderful book for those who love pets and those who think to have a pet.It's a nice book.

The Fisherman and the Genie

The fisherman and the genie
Published by: Pegasus

I took this book because the cover picture is so nice.
It is a story about a fisherman who daily comes near the river and catches some fishes for  to live with his family. The fisher man was a poor person, but he had a condition he will throw his fish not four times a day. And one day he threw net for 1st time he got only some rubbish., the 2nd time he didn't get anything, 3rd time nothing and that time he was praying for god to get something at the fourth time. But at this got nothing but a vase. A golden vase he thought of making the vase open with his knife so he could get some money or something else. 
He opened it a genie came out of that vase. It was a horrible genie. The fisherman was surprised. He asked who are you. The genie replied "I am a genie"."I rebelled against the king of genie. To punish me, he shut me up in this jar and he had me thrown into the sea." He also told that, "I thought of giving him a wish like to make him the richest man for the generation but no one opened the jar to release me, and in the second generation I vowed to give all treasures of the world to the person, in the third  generation, I  promised to make that person a king and to be always with him, grant him three wishes daily in the fourth generation. I vowed that if anyone would release me, I would kill him to choose in what way he wanna die but in the above three of the generation no one came, in the fourth generation you came so I need to kill you now. 
The fisherman was afraid he suddenly thought for a plan and told that genie, "OK. I will die but before that I want to know how can you from this jar even your feet cannot adjust in this. The foolish genie to prove this fisherman went into the jar again in a smoke form and the fisherman closed the jar by the change- the genie tried to get out from the jar but it failed.
I liked the story very much.
