Synopsis: "True Tails II from the Dog Park" is a fun and charming collection of short stories, quirky dog facts and top ten lists told from the perspective of two dogs who are best friends, Max and Luther. Entertaining and educational for both adults and children alike, dog lovers will be delighted with Max and Luther's unique perspective on all things dog! These are tales only a dog could tell.
I found the book to be well written and presented in an appealing manner incorporating illustrations with tidbits of information which makes learning fun.
I have to say one of my favorite "tails" was Mud Buffet. My dog, Lily, a very fluffy Pomeranian and Luther would be the best of friends since one of Lily's favorite pastimes is rolling around in the mud after the sprinklers run. Imagine the sight of the once white fluff-ball covered in sticky brown mud!
True Tails II from the Dog Park kept me entertained until the end and I know it will be a favorite among children and adults.
I highly recommend picking up a copy.
About the Author
While both authors are life- long dog lovers, Kari Sherman had recently welcomed her first dog, Max into her adult life after growing up with a progression of animals (both dogs and cats). In contrast, Carey had owned numerous dogs all throughout her life. Within a year of meeting, these two individuals wrote their first book, discovered the joys and pitfalls of self-publishing, created a website and embraced all that social media had to offer. This was quite a feat for two people with no background in writing and a latent dread of the intimacy that current technology has brought to the world. Once started down their new career path, the two budding authors have enthusiastically embraced all the knowledge and opportunity this had afforded them. Kari and Carey’s mantra has been “Go Big or Go Home” while navigating the marketing options on the release of their first book “True tails from the Dog Park”. If truth be told, they have placed a long shot bet and hope that their horse will come in!
