If you were a retired racing greyhound, say, about four years old and you could with yourself anywhere to live, you'd probably pick a place with lots of running room, warm sun, shade and gentle breezes, right? WRONG! Not our hero, Comet. He finds himself plunked down in the Fresh Meadows neighborhood of Newq York City. Adopted by Rob and Jesse Brooks and their eight year old daughter, Patty, he's faced with a new family and a new place to live that has nothing what ever to do with racing or race tracks. How's a guy to get through all that? Why, with a mentor like Rodrigo de Santana, the Spanish cat who's the unofficial mayor of the neighborhood. Rodrigo is joined by Igloo the gentle giant, an Alaskan malamute (very big and very strong) in teaching Comet how to get along in this strange new place. The story chronicles their adventures as they meet an old enemy, the bully, Frankie Jessup. He and his gang have been after Patty and her schoolmates ever since kindergarten and now that they're all in middle school things are getting worse and scarier. The Traveling Day celebration, sponsored by the local middle school is scheduled to end in a bike race through the neighborhood. Frankie and his gang plan to hi-jack the race and wind up the winner. The sudden onset of a snowstorm no one predicted catches the neighborhood and the racers completely unprepared. The terrible trio, Comet, Rodrigo and Igloo, decide to take a hand and try to rescue the kids from the storm and from Jessup. How? Can they? Will they? How will this all end up? It's all in the story, my friends...
