Gobi: A Little Dog With a Big Heart is an adorable children's book that shares the true story of a stray dog who runs with ultra-marathon runner through the Gobi desert.
I loved the illustrations of the dog, Gobi. She's a scruffy-looking pup with big, loving eyes. The author's photo on the book jacket shows Dion holding Gobi, who looks very similar to the illustrations, though less scruffy.
I really enjoyed the writing, too, which shared perspectives of Dion and Gobi.
The cover is very well done with Gobi's name in large glossy letters and Gobi herself glossy and bounding through a matte desert scene.
I received a copy of this book from Book Look, but was not required to post a positive review.
