"Let sleeping dogs lie and stop chasing your tails--there's work to be done!"

Daisy has observed there are too many dogs both in Washington and throughout America snapping and growling at one another rather than pulling together like a team of sled dogs. As 'The Big Dog,' President Bite'n, needs to shorten the leash on his Capitol Hill pack, 'Mighty Mitch' also needs to bring order and obedience to his litter. We've had enough of the rabid dogs in both dog houses and Bite'n and Mitch should muzzle them until they can obey the house rules.

And as for the rest of you pooches throughout America, it's time for you to show some pedigree. Stop dumping on your neighbor's lawn and growling whenever he passes your house. Maybe sit down and share a bone together or engage in a playful game of Chase The Car. Remember, we all evolved from the same ancestor, the wolf, but let's show America that during our evolution we learned some civility and kindness.

All will enjoy this cleverly written satire. I found myself unable to stop turning the pages to see who Daisy would encounter next as she makes her way from humble beginnings to the world of Reality TV. What fun matching Daisy's dog friends and encounters with our own real world superstar culture.

The author is spot on describing the world of Reality TV as seen through the eyes of a lovable rat terrier, Daisy. The book is enhanced with the author's own original artwork and her dogisms, which are hilarious.

Buy this book. It's a tail-wagger!

Daisy's Reality Show Adventure is a cleverly written account of a dog, living in an all-animal world, who embarks on the reality show circuit. The author reveals the protagonist's inner dog through her ups-and-downs. The short story tackles some of today's societal issues--Daisy is an activist dog with traditional values who lets her voice bark be heard. Thrust into a world that is foreign to her after her humble beginnings, she accepts the challenges of being part of the reality show culture by competing in American Howler after being discovered by a talent scout...stints on Top Mutt Chef, Project DogRun, and Retriever followed. In the end, Daisy has an epiphany after discussions with Dr. Phil McGrowl and her life changes.

Through this book the author is able to raise consciousness about the reality show phenomenon and popular culture. And through this satirical humor writing, makes the reader pause and think. It's obvious a lot of research was done by the author, as the breeds of dogs and their characteristics are well-depicted and there are many dogisms in the story. She obviously made herself aware of the Hollywood lifestyle and personalities and watched her share of reality TV in order to accurately portray her characters. It's an additional treat that the author illustrated her own book.

Daisy's Reality Show Adventure is a fun story for kids and adults alike.

The story follows Daisy as she leaves behind her old world and begins the journey to stardom. In this reality TV world we live in, Daisy's story fits right in. The book is filled with satirical characters... you have to check it out! If you are a fan of American Idol (or should I say American Howl), buy this book as you won't be disappointed!!

Excellent social commentary on the lives of "stars" in the US. The artwork clearly illustrates the souls of the characters especially Daisy.

This review is from: Daisy's Reality Show Adventure (Paperback)

I choose this rating because I was very impressed at Carol Wallace's imagination and wisdom. Daisy overcame so many problems and due to her will to succeed she did. The art work was beautifully done. I guess the moral of the story was that no matter what you have happen to you in life, you can never give up and work to succeed. I also loved the names of the dogs.
