Soon to be a family friendly major motion picture from Fox 2000 Studios—featuring Milo Ventimiglia, Amanda Seyfried, and Kevin Costner as the voice of Enzo the dog!
In this young readers’ edition of the New York Times bestselling adult novel The Art of Racing in the Rain, meet one funny mutt—Enzo, the lovable dog 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.
I love this book, how you made Enzo and Dennie's life as dog to master. How you showed his life as a dog from birth to death. So thank you for this incredible, touching, sad, story.
If there is only one book you can read, this would be it!!!
I am not an avid reader, nor be considered a reader for that matter. The only books I finished reading were those that I had to read to get my degree. Reading is not a hobby, pleasure or any satisfaction for me. Reading a one page article is enough for me. Having said that, I read this book in 2 days. During my flight from Philly to Denver (not the entire flight), I fell asleep at some point. I finished the book in a couple of hours in my hotel room.
What is the take away for me? The way I see life, and how I want my relationship with my pup Hunter to be. I now have a better understanding of him and how I would like our relationship from this day forward. We will live our days as if it were the last. No regrets just appreciation and seizing the moments.
Thanks to my dear friend Sonia for recommending this amazing book. Thank you to the author Mr. Stein for this master piece.

Like some movies I have seen, this book illicited deep emotions in me. I cried at the end. The struggle with daughter custody and loss of wife, and dear pet was well put together. Thank you sir.
