The Bel Ria can't help but become another classic. Sheila Burnford has written a beautiful, moving story, woven from many fine threads.

This book is a bit less believable, but it utterly caught me up, especially in the final chapters

Bel Ria Dog of War, by Sheila Burnford (read 25 Apr 2010) I read this because I was so moved by Burnford's great novel, The Incredible Journey-surely the greatest animal book I have ever read. This book is a bit less believable, but it utterly caught me up, especially in the final chapters

An absolutely wonderful book, so touching and heartbreaking...I have read this several times throughout my life and each time it melts my heart. Ms. Burnford has a true gift for storytelling and it always suprised me that this story was never turned into a movie like her more popular story The Incredible Journey; to me this is a far better book. I list this as one of my all time favorite books because of its heart and understanding of the relationships between dogs and humans.

It was great to follow some of the events of WWII through the life of a wee dog and the people by whom he was rescued, and others who he revived by being part of their lives.

The book was shipped quickly. I don't see why this book is called a
childrens book. It is a story that will appeal to animal lovers of any age.

If you are an animal lover you will like this book. It has adventure and history. Readers will also learn about WWII.

An historic tale set in the days during World War II. The destruction of a Gypsy circus caravan, by a German fighter pilot, sets in motion a desperate search by a courageous little dog, BEL RIA, and his faithful and constant companion LOUIS, a capuchin monkey, for the one last person they know that has ties to the Gypsy Caravan--a wounded English soldier. A fascinating story and so beautifully written--once I started it there was no way I could know I would not put it down again until I turned the last page. Tissues required!

We read it together - he still lets me read to him, but also reads happily on his own - and both of us enjoyed it a great deal. The prose style is distinctive and somewhat dated, but very well-written, so once a reader finds the rhythm there is no struggle with it. It is a sophisticated story, both subtle and very emotional, so a somewhat mature child might enjoy it the most.

This is an amazing book authored by Sheila Burnford and brought to life again by The New York Review Children's Collection. She is the author of "The Incredible Journey" that was made into a heart-warming, live-action movie by Disney in 1961.

This book will capture your heart and will bring you to tears as you experience the life of an innocent little dog during the Second World War. He travels as part of a gypsy band with an older couple, a pet monkey and a decrepit donkey, entertaining anyone who will stop to watch their antics for a mere pittance. They are desperately fleeing from the Nazi advance when suddenly tragedy strikes and he is left alone and must fend for himself. He attaches himself to a wounded soldier and is taken on board a Royal Navy ship that is heading to England. He becomes the ship's mascot and wins the hearts of many of the sailors. He is dubbed with the name Ria and is truly loved and respected by all.

Unfortunatley he is marooned in England in the midst of the Blitz and stumbles upon an old woman who is trapped in rubble from her bombed house and he rescues her. She is so grateful and takes the abandoned, pathetic, orphan in, feeds him healthy food, pampers him, and he lives in luxury with her. Being very old herself he makes the perfect companion and she lovingly gives him the name Bel. They both need each other and are inseparable.

Miraculously Bel's interaction with all the people he meets changes their lives for the better and strong bonds of friendship and love are created. If you are a dog lover and have a tender heart towards animals then this is the perfect story to ingest and savour. It is a magical story that will remain in your heart long after you have closed the book. I highly, highly recommend it.
Whether you read this book and come away moved by the heartfelt simplicity of its narrative, or whether you put it down after the final page and realize you've just experienced a complex metaphor of war and innocence, BEL RIA will never leave you. Like BLACK BEAUTY, this book is not just a children's book, although children will understand it completely - maybe better than adults. Like many earlier children's classics, it's a book of the real world, genuine and not at all diluted for young audiences. BEL RIA is a classic story of a dog's journey though a baffling human world as well as a simple and profound comment on the violence of war and what it means to the most innocent; the animals. Personally, at the instant I finished the book I understood that, when it comes to war, we are all Bel Ria. Professionally, as a writer, I deeply admire the author of this book and wish she had written many more books than she did. This is a book that will come into its own, time after time, and I can think of no better answer to a child's question, "What is war all about?"
