The authors purpose of writing this story is to get the point across that no mater where you are in life or what your doing,there's a purpose that your living for,and you might not realize it until things come to an end. Conflict: The overall conflict was the dog trying to find and fulfill its purpose in each life. Text to Text:In this book I read,"The 12 days of Christmas" a lady keeps repeating the same day over and over for 12 days.Its like the dog repeating his lives.Each day she did something different than the one before,but still kept making miskates.On the 12th day she did everything right,and realized on all the other days there was purpose for her mistakes.She learned that at first things might not make sense,but at the end you can use what you've learned,This is like the dog using all his purposes to find Ethan in the very end. I give this book a double thumbs up!Even though it was sad in parts it made me want to keep reading.I also liked it because it has a great lesson to teach
