What to Expect: Dogs, celebrities, humor, family.
Fame isn’t just for humans! Meet the Barkingtons – a happily dysfunctional family of dog celebrities living the life of the rich, famous, and furry. Matriarch Margie wants nothing more than to read her book, but between her daughter’s divorce plans, her husband’s arguments about what to watch on TV, and her son’s constant harebrained stunts, it doesn’t look like she’ll ever get the chance.
From memories about their big screen successes to cocktails by the pool, wild antics, celebrity chefs, divorces, and mansion renovations, this family’s doggy dramas are the stuff of headlines. Can they overcome their egos to support each other like a real family? You’ll have to read to find out!
Filled with tongue-in-cheek parodies of well-known celebrity families and their lifestyles, Keeping Up with the Car Chasers is not just a humorous pastiche but also a story about selfishness, consideration for others, and family values. While readers will appreciate the references to smartphones, social media, and influencers, they’ll also learn subtle lessons about empathy and thoughtfulness. Fun digital cartoon illustrations add to the humor with depictions of celebrity lifestyles packed with canine allusions.
Keeping Up with the Car Chasers is an entertaining perspective on celebrity culture and could be used for starting discussions about fame, family, and money.
