Review: Lazy Daisy

Jasper Horatio Wiggleby Clarke longs for a dog he can walk in the park.

This adorable man is rather short-sighted and extremely stuck on his dream.

So the loud noises he hears in the night can mean only one thing—a hilarious case of mistaken identity.

A dog that doesn't want to walk is unheard of, so Jasper does everything he can to inspire Daisy to get up and get moving.

The result is a heartwarming romp that includes a touch of the ridiculous.

Lazy Daisy absolutely nails both rhythm and rhyme. As a result, it's one of those rare read-aloud treats the whole family can enjoy.

But you'll have to read to the end to find out if Jasper Horatio Wiggleby Clarke ever achieves his dream of having a pet he can walk around the park.
