Lessons from Tara
By

Rating
David Rosenfelt's loyal readers of the Andy Carpenter series are familiar with Tara, the golden retriever sidekick. Many also got to know Tara from "Dogtripping," David's nonfiction book about becoming a slightly nutty dog rescuer and the dog that started it all. Here, finally, is a book all about the inspirational canine who taught David everything he knows. Well, he did know how to tie his shoes before he met and came to love Tara, but that's about it.Through Tara, David learned about dating, about being able to share his emotions, and also about everyday stuff like who gets to use the pillow if several dogs are sleeping in your bed (clue: It's not the human) and why random barking will never be something that can be eliminated. "Lessons From Tara" is infused with David's trademark wry and self-deprecating sense of humor, and will move readers to tears and laughter.

Reviews

Praise for "Dogtripping" "Getting into animal rescuing is not anything most people plan, and David Rosenfelt is no different. It is usually that one special animal that has touched your heart, and in David's case, it was Tara who changed his life. If you are an animal rescuer, you will no doubt see yourself in the pages of this book (perhaps many times over!), and if you're not, this book just might encourage you to go out and save some animals. David is one of the good guys, because anyone who can call their car a "shit mobile" is truly an animal lover." --Judy Francis of Animal Radio "Lovely, funny, poignant...Dog lovers will relish the wit and wisdom in these pages, while perhaps being thankful to share a bed with only one or two creatures." --The Dodo "Humorous and touching recollections of some of the hundreds of dogs [Rosenfelt] has adopted and what he has learned in his journey. It may just inspire the reader to rescue a dog or two." --Chicago Tribune "Entertaining." --Booklist "Dogtripping is a delightful romp through [the] adventures -- and misadventures -- of running a dog rescue...If it's been too long since you enjoyed a funny, sweet, romantic tale, read this book." --Associated Press "A warmhearted winner." --Kirkus Reviews on Dogtripping "Spirited and absolutely absorbing reading for fans of canine capers--both fictional and otherwise." --Booklist on Dogtripping "A story as poignant as it is hilarious." --Library Journal (starred review) on Dogtripping "Dogtripping is a book that will make you laugh, cry, and want to adopt a dog from the nearest shelter--all on the same page...In short--it's wonderful." --The Examiner Getting into animal rescuing is not anything most people plan, and David Rosenfelt is no different.
