The Gopi Diaries is a series of three books for children about Sudha Murty's dog- Gopi. Told in Gopi's voice, the first book, Coming Home, begins with Gopi going to his new home and tells the story of how he settles down with his loving, human family. How Gopi sees the world around him and what he thinks of the people in his life give the story a truly unique flavour. Written in Sudha Murty's inimitable style, these are books children and adults will treasure as the simple stories talk of basic values even when told from a dog's perspective.

Gopi is a golden retriever, who is bought home by Murty's son Rohan. The book takes us through his life journey since his birth to him settling down at the Murty's house. The parts where Narayan Murty is scared of the puppy and the way the puppy perceives it is one of the best parts in the book. It makes us realise the simple pleasures of life from a dog's perspective. The illustrations by Sandhya Prabhat and the editing by Shrutkeerti Khurana is sure to leave with a smile.
