A new student review of Daisy to the Rescue: True Stories of Daring Dogs, Paramedic Parrots, and Other Animal Heroes by Jeff Campbell

Tabethar posted a new student review of Daisy to the Rescue: True Stories of Daring Dogs, Paramedic Parrots, and Other Animal Heroes by Jeff Campbell. See the full review.

Daisy to the Rescue by Jeff Campbell, is a fantastic compilation of stories about unbelievable animal heroics. I found the stories intriguing and inspiring and I really enjoyed learning about these amazing animals. The stories were organized in an easily understandable manner that provided all the facts about each event (such as the name and species of the animal, as well as who they saved) at the beginning of the each story. The stories then unfolded, with related anecdotes attached to emphasize animals’ caring disposition and our underestimation of them.

I felt that the simplistic writing style was slightly distracting, but the actual tales of these amazing creatures eclipsed any criticism provided.
