Review: Finding Gobi: The True Story of One of Little Dog's Big Journey
We had received the kids' book Gobi: A Little Dog with a Big Heart and loved it. So I was excited when the opportunity came up to review the junior novel: Finding Gobi: The True Story of One Little Dog's Big Journey by Dion Leonard. And we were not disappointed.
This book is based on the true story of friendship between a man running an ultramarathon and the little dog that kept him company and then became his companion after the race! They stay together and cross the finish line after 80 miles, bu then, when Dion is going to take Gobi home to Scotland, he disappears, and they have to try to find him somewhere in China!
This particular book seems to be a good fit for kids who are about 8 years old and up to read by themselves. Or it could be a book that a parent could read to their younger child. It's wonderful to have an opportunity just to read a happy and positive story. I'm always looking for good junior novels, and this is definitely one of them.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review from booklookbloggers.com
