Comet’s Tale by Steven Wolf is a delightful book about a man and his dog. This story tells of how Wolf goes from being a self centered disabled man who rescues a greyhound from a foster home which rescues doomed former racers to being a man with a trained greyhound service dog who happens to be disabled. The book takes the reader through Wolf’s physical as well as emotional problems in an honest yet entertaining way. Wolf not only learns how to function as a disabled man with the help of Comet as a service dog which he trained himself but Comet helps him learn to function as a human being with much to live for.
You will laugh, you will cry but you will keep reading. This is a book that anyone in the family can read and enjoy. I would not be surprised at all to see it made into a movie, perhaps a Disney or Hallmark. This is a book you’ll love.
