Gobi – a little dog with a Big Heart

Gobi a little dog with a big heart stars in this wonderful colourful picture book.

GOBI picture book-1

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.

Finding Gobi – on Etsy

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.

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.
