Dog Days: Tales of Humility (Tiny Epic Adventures) by Bill Calhoun will delight readers with the adventures of Bailey, the Bulldog and the empowering messages the author conveys subtly through the story. Bailey, the Bulldog, Harry, the Beagle, and Beatrice, the Poodle, are locked up in a dog pound after creating dog trouble in their neighborhood. The time spent in the dog pound teaches these three dogs important lessons. The circumstances inside the dog pound teach them to let go of their ego, greed, and vanity. Will these dogs understand and let go of bad habits to bring more peace and happiness into their lives?

This endearing story not only captivates children with the adventure of the three dogs, but also teaches them about some important life lessons. The dog pound, where various breeds of dogs of all shapes, sizes and colors are kept because of causing trouble in the neighborhood, exposes these three dogs to the different characters of other dogs. The other dogs, the Bloodhound and Greedy Greg, in the dog pound are mean and greedy. The bright and colorful illustrations give life to the characters and they complement the story beautifully.

I liked the story mainly for its moral and positive messages. It is important to speak to children about good values and this story does that beautifully. The message that what you give to the world is what you get in return is expressed well that the children can understand it easily. An excellent story with some powerful lessons for kids that will help them think in a positive manner.
