Gobi by Dion Leonard – reviewed by Celine
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Date of publication: 2017
Genres: True story, animals, spiritual, sport
This hard copy book is absolutely beautiful with gorgeous full colour large illustrations and accompanying text that describes how Dion meets a little desert dog, who is looking for a companion, and finds a new home. The book is aimed at ages 1 to 8 years old, but who cares? See Dion’s information at this link here .
I bought a copy of this book along with a plush toy Gobi, because I am interested in all animals. At the time of posting this Review, the picture book of “Finding Gobi” and plush toy are still available to purchase on Etsy, link below. Note: the book cover is a bit different to the one that I bought.
I highly recommend the hard-copy children’s picture book for kids and adults alike – for an enjoyable complete story about the initial meeting of Dion and Gobi. The pictures and the story are up-lifting and bright and happy, a real treasure to pick up and indulge in when you are perhaps feeling “down” or alone. It is a magical story.
Basil the dog detective (we are dog-sitting a gorgeous little Cairn Terrier) meets Gobi !!
OTHER BOOK INFORMATION
I have the adult’s book and have done a review of it, which you can read here .
My hardcopy CHILDREN’S PICTURE BOOK has a printed autograph by Dion and a printed paw-print (paw-tograph) from Gobi. I bought this special edition when the books and toys were first released on Etsy.
