Dear Friends, I am leaving in rather a hurry to see more of the world, so I have no time to say goodbye to you individually. I embrace you all and sniff you with love. I don't know when I'll be back. But back I will be.

Dominic

It's time for a change, so Dominic packs his collection of hats and his piccolo and heads out, letting the world take him where it may. When Dominic encounters members of the Doomsday Gang, he easily foils their attempt to rob him. Legend of his victory quickly spreads, and each new friend Dominic meets tells him a story of their own less-fortunate meeting with the villains, and asks for help from the heroic dog. But can one lone dog bring down an entire band of hooligans? Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " This is a MUST OWN and re-read book. Almost a crash course in wonder, philosophy, and how to roll with the punches, Dominic's adventures are as much for grown-ups as for the child in all of us. Five extra-bright and dazzling stars!! :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ishta Mercurio | 2/11/2014

    " This is delightful - the dry humor is perfect for my tastes, and my son laughed his way through the whole thing. I love the way everything comes together - a true classic. "

    " i have already read this book but I am re-reading it. It was pretty good. Obviously good enough for me to re-read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adrienne | 2/7/2014

    " Lovely. Funny, poignant, sweet. Dominic, "bright, brave, generous dog" -- "Though he had seen so many marvels, his sense of wonder never waned." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Howie | 1/20/2014

    " This book is the one I used to read every time my school's librarian told me to just pick a book. I love this book. It's easy to read, with a clear and concise point. The characters are wonderful, and the protagonist himself is too good for words. It's really something I cherish and probably will always come back to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 1/11/2014

    " My first-grade teacher read this to us ... and I still remember the song we sang with it. It was a sad day when we finished it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lilly white | 1/4/2014

    " IT WAS A WONDERFUL READ!!!!!!!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Isabel | 1/1/2014

    " I read this with my dad, and enjoyed it tremendously. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 12/19/2013

    " So here's my current sleep-deprived reading level! This was one of my favorite books as a kid . . it's still great:-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josh | 11/1/2013

    " Fantastic book. Moves between simple folk tale story arcs and poetic character development. Dominic lives with the kind of glad abandon that I want my kids to see modeled by more characters. He's Peter Pan if Peter wasn't a selfish jerk. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 4/28/2013

    " The right mix of silly and sincere. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Noah Sebastian | 2/16/2013

    " I think William Steig is the first grader version of Bill Peet, great stories about animals having life lessons, coming of age (first grade age) stories, learning about and respecting others, all while having an adventure that most first graders would have. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gregg | 5/16/2012

    " My favorite book as a 4th grader. My mom got it for me when I was sick one day. Great adventure story about a dog who travels to find his way in life. Great story about choices and faith. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel | 5/11/2012

    " Not just my favorite children's book, but one of my favorite books period. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 2/16/2012

    " Charming, tender adventure story of a piccolo-playing dog who sets off to see the world. One of those books that feels lovingly crafted, like "Abel's Island" and Randall Jarrell's "The Animal Family." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ladyellie | 1/2/2012

    " I read it for a class I'm taking for my MA in Education. Great Children's book, so many lessons to learn from it. Especially those of friendship and the difference between right and wrong. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 5/25/2011

    " I read this with the boys for their school book club. I did NOT enjoy it. A bit much for 8 year olds IMHO. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly | 3/12/2010

    " As charming and sly and unpretentious and damn near perfect as 'Abel's Island.' I absolutely adore William Steig. This is sure to be a novel I return to again and again. "

    " One of my absolute FAVORITES! I think the illustrations had a lot to do with it, but it is a really cute story. "

    " Steig's philosophy of life - "take the road to the left, the road to adventure." And then give it everything you've got: "Oh life! I am yours. Whatever you ask of me, I will give it."
    A gem. "

    " My all time favorite kid's book. "
