based on the NY Times best-selling novel, "The Art of Racing in the Rain" by Garth Stein

ENZO RACES IN THE RAIN! is based on the early adventures of the canine narrator of Garth Stein's novel for adults, THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN (Harper 2009) and his young adult edition, RACING IN THE RAIN: My Life as a Dog (Harper, 2011).

For this picture book introduction to Enzo, I drew the pictures, as you might expect.† And, with Garth's direction, the charming author ZoŽ B. Alley and I collaborated with him to bring his Enzo to the picture book crowd.


Meet Enzo the puppy, one very special mutt. Enzo knows he's different from other dogs. He's sure of it. But people never understand him when he barks, and it drives him crazy!

Life on the farm is pretty quiet -- except when he races the cars that come down the barn road. Because Enzo is fast!

But when Enzo meets a little girl named ZoŽ and her father, Denny, everything changes. Enzo embarks on an action-packed adventure as he makes the long journey from the farm to the city, discovers just how big the world is, and finds the family that was truly meant to be his.
