Review

Illustrations and words bring the characters to life; this is an astonishing book which shouldn't be lost on adults either. There is a happy ending, but at the point where it didn't seem likely. I challenge any reader not to be touched. Beware of kids asking to adopt a greyhound after reading this book. -Top 10 Pet Books for Kids by Steve Dale, Tribune Media Services, Nov. 2006 --Tribune Media Services

About the Author

It was an easy formula: Finish college. Write a best-selling novel. Write a few more. A funny thing happened on Craig s route to the best-seller list. He needed to pay the rent. And becoming a copywriter for an Indianapolis ad agency narrowly achieved that goal. They paid Craig to draft local radio spots touting cough suppressants and hygiene products. There was nothing in the job description about writing novels. As Craig s career drifted toward marketing and management roles, he began to write more for the personal challenge of it - drafts of screenplays, random essays and the occasional poem. The notion of writing for children began shortly after adopting two remarkably gentle greyhounds named Gator and Hilly. Craig found himself commuting to work and mulling a children s story about the strange arc of a rescued racing dog s life. In 2003, a mutual friend introduced him to Tony. After meeting at a pizza joint, they decided to turn A Greyhound s Tale: Running for Glory, Walking for Home into a collaborative project. Seven years later, Craig and Tony are working on the sixth book in their American Dog series. Craig now lives in Genoa, IL with his wife, two children and rescued greyhound Honey.

As a greyhound adopter and a Mom, I love this book! It is informative, entertaining and heart warming. The artwork is lovely, and the verses are easy to read and understand for toddlers through kids age 8.

Owning two of my own ex-racer Greyhounds, I find this book very accurate and written in a most heartfelt way.

Beautiful watercolor artwork and a nice story about retired racer adoption. Good book to help prepare my kids for adopting a greyhound.
