Racing in the rain, an update.

Racing in the Rain: My Life as a Dog – Garth Stein (HarperCollins, 2011)

To my delight, Stein’s version of The Art of Racing in the Rain for young readers has retained all of the beauty and intent of the adult book, revising only the content that might be a little too brutal, sexual, and mature for children. Everything else is intact, which is a huge relief for me: while I was initially a bit worried about how the author would deal with the adult themes, I was more concerned that the book would be turned into mamby-pamby sentimental goo. But, all is well, and the book is a wonderful read in either form.
