Book Description

April 25 2011

Have you ever wondered what your dog is thinking?

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 his daughter, Zoë, his constant companion. Enzo finds that life is just like being on the racetrack—it isn't simply about going fast. And, 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.

This is a special adaptation for young people of the acclaimed New York Times bestselling adult novel The Art of Racing in the Rain.

4.0 out of 5 stars very good but watchout! Nov. 20 2012
By lori
I read this book in adult version and just loved it.
so much so that I ordered two for my friends/family....
was disappointed in this particular choice as it was not the adult version.

be careful to look an enlarged pic of front cover
where it says...juvenille version. tho it probably was very good also.

5.0 out of 5 stars a smart canine dude Aug. 26 2011
By Judith
I absolutely loved this book. I borrowed it from a friend, and then ended up buying my own copy. Enzo is one smart little canine dude! Every dog owner knows that their dog has deep thoughts - well here they are written down. Very philosophical, sensitive and altogether wonderful. Great reading and thought provoking.

I have to be honest; I did not read this book which is a youth's version of "The Art of Racing in the Rain," which I did read and review. I purchased this book in error not realizing the age group for which it was written. As a consequence I donated the book to a library where I understand it has attracted a waiting list of young readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A special adaptation for young readers... Oct. 8 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recently read the digital edition of this book & loved it. I ordered the paperback for my husband only to realize this was a special edition for young readers. Amazon should include 'A special adaptation for young readers' in the title to avoid confusion. I will be donating this copy to my local elementary school's library.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Art of Racing in the Rain - excellent book Feb. 13 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best books I have ever read, in fact I have read it three times. It includes insight into relationships, work, love, life, and the magic of the human/canine relationship. I love the dog's perspective which allows for such insight. It is complicated and simple. My book club, 10 rather critical people, all loved it - a first I think to have unanimous approval for a book.
