Gobi and Finding Goby by Dion Leonard
Little description: Bring home the incredible true story of a friendship so strong that it crosses the globe! You will love the inspiring tale of Gobi, a lost dog who kept pace with an ultramarathon runner, Dion Leonard, across a vast desert. Follow their unlikely friendship through the challenges of an 80-mile race and Dion’s struggle to bring Gobi home for good.
Finding Gobi: The True Story of One Little Dog’s Big Journey is the incredible true story of Dion Leonard, an athlete who was befriended by a stray dog while running an ultramarathon through the Gobi Desert. Named for the desert in which he found her, Gobi became Dion’s closest companion for 77 miles of the 155-mile race across China. The scrappy little pup ran mile after mile alongside Dion, through treacherous conditions and across raging rivers. He let her sleep in his tent and share his food, and eventually, his focus shifted from winning to the newfound friendship he and Gobi shared.
They crossed the finish line together—not first, but together—and Dion decided to bring Gobi home to Scotland. Just before they were about to leave, however, Gobi disappeared, setting off a worldwide search for the stray. In a town of more than 3 million people, the search seemed hopeless, but this tale of friendship will surprise and delight you as you find out what happens!
Join the almost too-good-to-be-true story of hope, friendship, and beating incredible odds in Finding Gobi: The True Story of One Little Dog’s Big Journey by Dion Leonard.
Genre: Children’s Book
My thoughts: 4 stars out of 5
Today I present to you two books, instead of one. They unite in one amazing story about the dog called Gabby and the yellow-jacket man called Dion. Read about their warm budding relations and how they found each other. Travel trough Gobi desert sands to find new friendship build. Lost and away from each other, Gobi finds that it’s hard to live without her friend. A beautiful quest of a little dog who befriended Mr. Dion, the runner of ultramarathon… Meet miles upon miles of sands, heart-to-heart friends, and the adventure your kid will never forget.
One book is kid’s illustrated book, a short version of the actual marathon. It tells from Gobi’s point of view. The second one is for middle-schoolers who enjoy puppies and a good story…
