Publisher's Summary

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 a 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 three 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.

Simply delightful!

Would you consider the audio edition of Finding Gobi: Young Reader's Edition to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version so I can't say but I found the audio version just delightful! The narration and story just fit together so well.

I don't know of any similar books I've read.

Which scene was your favorite?

The first part when Dion meets Gobi and they become friends.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The part when he had to find Gobi. I knew it was going to be OK but it was a bit tense to listen to.
