Descripción

Have you ever wondered what your dog is thinking?

Ini Garth Stein's special adaptation for young people of his acclaimed New York Times bestselling adult novel The Art of Racing in the Rain, readers will meet one funny dog: Enzo, the lovable mutt who tells this story.

Enzo knows he is different from other dogs. Most dogs love to chase cars, but Enzo longs to race them.

He learns about racing and the world around him by watching TV and by listening to the words of his best friend, Denny, an up-and-coming race car driver, and Denny's daughter, Zoë, his constant companion. Enzo finds that life is just like being on the racetrack—it isn't simply about going fast.

Applying the rules of racing to his world, Enzo takes on his family's challenges and emerges a hero. In the end, Enzo holds in his heart the dream that Denny will go on to be a racing champion with his daughter by his side.

For theirs is an extraordinary friendship—one that reminds us all to celebrate the triumph of the human (and canine) spirit.

  • (4/5)
    Although in the children's section in the library, this was not a children's book. I stopped reading it to my boys, because the content was ...for lack of a better word, 'too real'. The ease by which parent's rights could be taken away was shown clearly through this fiction. (Thus the 'too real' for my boys) But it presents an accurate view of society's view on father's rights. (Very concerning)


    Stein provides a good example of a book written in one POV---from a dog's perspective.


    The theme of fighting for what you treasure without quitting offered hope and inspiration.

    The lessons from racing cars paralleled life's lessons adding a different perspective unknown to me.

    I didn't finish reading it to my boys, but I had to finish reading it for myself. (and gave them a synopsis for closure)

    A book of warning to fathers who don't see what society is doing to their rights. Hang in there and don't quit. Fathers are needed.

    Heartwarming and well produced. I really enjoyed this book which contains great life lessons packed in a truly well written novel.
  • (5/5)
    It was an existing book about a dog who wanted to be a human
  • (4/5)
    Told from the dog's point of view, how he wished he could talk to help a father regain custody of his daughter.
  • (3/5)
    Story from dog's point of view. His owner is Denny, who is a race car driver. A good portion of the story is the custody battle with the in-laws after his wife dies from brain cancer. It has a good ending. It's an OK story, just nothing to write home about.
