Yes, there's a flight of Enzo out there (laughs). A few years ago we did the young reader's version of ("The Art of Racing in the Rain") without the curse words and such, and that was very successful with middle-school audiences. Just recently and it's very cute. It's very sweet, and the illustrations are wonderful by Bob Alley. We're doing another one next year that will be a Christmas story. So Enzo lives on and will always have a soft place in my heart, but I have other books to write as well.
The first book with a dog as the narrator that I’ve enjoyed, The Art of Racing in the Rain isn’t just about Enzo and the events he perceives through his canine eyes, but a story encompassing family, morality, and humility. Enzo possessed a remarkably sophisticated yet real perspective, juxtaposing race car driving with life while detailing the journey of his owner, Denny.
