Descrizione del libro

8 dicembre 2011
This story deals with some very close friends of mine. First, there's Comet, a retired racing Greyhound, then Igloo, an Alaskan Malamute (very large and very strong), and the wise and experienced Rodrigo, a Spanish cat (don't ask). The three friends converge on the life and times of Rob and Jesse Brooks and their eight year old daughter, Patty, in the Queens neighborhood of Fresh Meadows in New York City. The area is urban, noisy and crowded with children, people of all sizes, colors and backgrounds and is a place of complete mystery to a four year old Greyhound whose life has been devoted to racing. Running is what he loves and running is what he does...but not quite fast enough to remain at the track. One day Comet finds himself plunked down in the middle of a brand new world. He's got a new family and a new place to live complete with new sounds and smells. How's a guy to get through all that? Why, with a mentor like Rodrigo de Santana, the Spanish cat. Rodrigo is an old-timer in the neighborhood who knows everyone and everything and he's joined in the task of educating Comet in by Igloo, the gentle giant. Their adventures in getting to know one another, in dealing with Patty and her friends and in discovering the wonders and dangers of big city life will make you laugh, keep you interested and be fun for young and old readers alike.

L'autore

Also by Arnold Haber: Fast Dog-Cool Cat-Hot Dog and The Peanut Butter Trail Arnold Haber, Arne to his friends, is a native New Yorker, born and raised in the borough of Brooklyn and currently living in the Oakland Gardens section of Queens. A retired pharmacist and community health planner, Arne spends his time either blogging about the Great American Songbook or writing about his adventures with Sweets, a 14 year old retired racing Greyhound. Although Sweets went to the rainbow bridge in November of 2010, they had been together for more than eleven years. As a result Arne put together several pieces of fiction in the form of short stories and two novels with his muse, Sweets, as a central character. They spent their days either strolling through the neighborhood or doing their thing at home. While Sweets dug pasta, pizza and liberal licks of peanut butter, Arne would kick back by listening to his collection of jazz cd's and writing about his buddy.

5.0 su 5 stelle What a Greyt Read! 8 maggio 2014

My son is 5 years old, and in preschool. He's not reading on his own yet, but loves when i read to him. So, I thought we'd try this book as his 1st Chapter Book, and what a good decision that was- He loved it!! For the 1st time ever, he learned about the suspense of a story, and having to wait to find out what happens next. This book was a wonderful combination of being easy enough for him to understand and follow, yet interesting enough that he couldn't wait for the next chapter the next day (we read 1 chapter each night). We both really enjoyed the characters, especially Comet. They each have their own identifiable personality, and Patty is a sweet girl that learns to stand up for herself against a bully. So, this book also has a good lesson that many children will relate to at one point or another. Arnold did a WONDERFUL job delivering a story that old and young can both thoroughly enjoy. We'll look forward to reading Arnold's next book together too!

5.0 su 5 stelle A Greyt Story!!! 14 luglio 2012
Di Pattiofdarkstar - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Acquisto verificato
This was a fun, easy read. It covered some very interesting territory, by going into a good bit of detail in what an adopted dog may go through. Once people realize that dogs may have a whole different spin on life, they tend to become better and more caring owners.
A nice addition was the heroine learning how to deal with "mean" people. There are bullies out there so having a game plan is a good way to go.
Please write more books, I would love to have a library of your work!
( I did read this one aloud to my 4 Greys, 2 Jack Russells, Corgi and Catahoula...they loved it, but the Russells think you do need a JRT to control the cat...sorry...)

5.0 su 5 stelle Heartstrings 28 maggio 2013
Di Dusty - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This book tugged at my grown-up heartstrings and your child will love it, too. Greyhounds finding families after racing touch the lives of many lucky people, including myself, and this author brings the magic of that event to life. As a retired teacher, I would highly recommend this book to elemementary teachers as a read aloud in the classroom. It would lead to many valuable discussions about family, new beginnings, friendships, loyalty, kindness, bullying, decision-making and the importance of being helpful and respectful. What a goldmine! Parents should read it with their children. This author understands that children and animals can and do communicate with one another on a level that most grown-ups have forgotten about. I believe, like Arne Haber and E. B. White, that children can hear animals talking because they really listen, but adults are too busy talking and that's why we don't hear them. Don't hesitate to buy this book for your son, daughter, grandchild or classroom - it has something for everyone.
