This compelling novella, told from a dog’s point of view, is based on the true events that turned Arthur, an Ecuadorian stray dog, into a global celebrity.


Arthur’s journey began when he attached himself to the captain of an extreme sports team while competing in the 2014 Adventure Racing World Championship. It wasn’t easy but, in the end, Arthur was able to win exactly what he wanted…

With about 400 unique words and plenty of repetition, El rey Arthur tells a 4,120-word story about the bond between a dog and a human. A full glossary for each of the seven chapters is included plus illustrations.
