About the Author

Dion Leonard is a 41 year old Australian who lives in Edinburgh, Scotland with his wife Lucja. Dion has not only completed but competed in some of the world’s toughest ultra marathons across the planet’s most inhospitable landscapes. This includes running across the brutal Moroccan Sahara desert twice in the 250km Marathon Des Sables and also twice across South Africa's Kalahari Desert, also 250km. Dion's latest 250km race across the Gobi Desert in China turned out to be a completely different race where he fell in love with a stray dog (later named Gobi) that followed him during the week and who would change both of their lives forever.

FINDING GOBI is a seriously good book. I have no idea when the last time I sat down and read an entire book in one day. The story about Gobi and how she attached herself to Dion is amazing. At first, he didn't like her all that much then she started to grow on him and by the end of the race he started to make preparations to take her home to Scotland. And from China that is like a LOT of red tape. While they were trying to prepare to cut through all that red tape, she ran off. When the book got to this place, I started to worry that the family she was staying with in China was abusive because she had to have a hip replacement and had a scar on her forehead and when he first found her she was wary of people coming to the door. Especially certain people who caused her to bark and go crazy. Mainly the people she was staying with. Like she was afraid of them. She allowed Dion's best friend to come, she liked him. I really enjoyed this story and I hated to put it down. I will definitely read it again. I really like that it was a real story. It is also available in a children's book for 'read to me' children or a book for adults with more detail. You won't want to miss this one. Great read! I was provide a free copy. All opinions are my own.

I love this book! The story is incredible. It is so cool that a Marathon runner would take the time to stop for a little dog. Pretty quickly in the book, I loved Gobi and her entire family. In the end, it is a "feel good" book through and through! You do not want to miss out on this one. It is a great story for Young Readers. I think it is a book that will stay with them for years to come.

Love this wonderful book! Ultramarathoner finds Gobi, an endearing little stray doggie, during a 155-mile race through the Gobi Desert in China. He loses the race but gains a darling new companion ... and a change of heart about what’s important in life. 5/5 Grateful to the author, Thomas Nelson - - W Publishing and NetGalley for review copy; opinions are truly mine.

Finding Gobi: Young Reader's Edition: The True Story of One Little Dog's Big Journey by Aaron Rosenberg is a super fun book for kids! My nine year old absolutely loved this book. In fact she read through the entire book in two days and couldn't put it down. She loves Gobi and loved the true story of one little dog's big journey. Kids will absolutely fall head over heals in love with the inspiring tale of Gobi, a lost dog who kept pace with an ultramarathon runner, Dion Leonard, across a vast desert. Finding Gobi: Young Reader's Edition: The True Story of One Little Dog's Big Journey by Aaron Rosenberg is the perfect book to inspire kids that they will absolutely enjoy reading! Disclosure: I received product(s) for free, in exchange for my honest review. I only recommend products I've used personally, and believe will be good fit for consumers.
