When Tom Corwin's golden retriever, Bob, passed away unexpectedly, Tom decided to write a letter as a tribute to his life. The letter told Bob's many human friends what they might not have known -- the surprising story of how he was once a ferocious, untrusting dog named Red, and how through sheer determination he changed completely to become Tom's best friend. Tom began receiving an outpouring of heartfelt responses to what he came to realize was actually a universaltale about the possibility of change and the transformational power of love. Friends and strangers urged him to bring the story to more people, and with a vision of how it might look, Tom designed this special book version of the letter. With a total of just more than one thousand words, this poignant story reads like a poem, underscored by flipbook illustrations of Tom's beloved Bob. Laid out with only one sentence per page, the book's spare quality and unique design have a powerful impact and readers will return to its pages again and again.
