Book Review

Dear Mom,
I just finished the best book. Ever. I only get books from the library but this is worthy of a bookstore buy. To have on the shelf. Forever.
It is called, "The Art of Racing in the Rain" by Garth Stein. The book is written from the dog's perspective. It is absolutely and utterly charming. Sweet. Touching. Funny. A 27 (at least!)-hankie book. It has also given me an entirely new appreciation for Keeper. I am her dog whisperer. She whispers to me as well.
Find the book. Consume it and let it seep into your soul.

uhuh. no way. I am the one who cried when the Lassie music STARTED. Sad dog stories aren't my thing. And I refuse to ever ever see Old Yeller.

I'm gonna tell Mom! said...

It's not a sad dog story. It's a sweet dog story about his life with his family. A MUST read!

27 hankies sounds sad to me.

I looked this book up on the Barnes & Noble website ( The book reviews were, "Not a dog lover? You will be." Now if someone would just be brave enough to write one from a cat's THAT would be interesting!!
