Review: Kato and the Fountain of Wrinkles by:Rhys Ella
About the Book:
For famous animal actor Kato Rhyan, being named "Cutest Pug Alive" by Pooch Magazine was cool (all right, really cool). But for him, acting isn't about fame, it's a part of him buried deep within his soul; and he's not about to let anything stand in his way of becoming the first animal to win an Oscar for Best Actor, even if it means taking on a role that requires a wrinkly dog's worst nightmare -- Botox injections.
But before the injection process begins, it's discovered that the Fountain of Wrinkles -- located in his beautiful hometown of Callia Rugas -- has been contaminated by Botox, jeopardizing the lives of crinkly canines everywhere and setting off a chain of events that force him to bid farewell to his dream and set foot on an adventure of a lifetime in search of the antidote to restore the Fountain.
But as with any good Hollywood tale, the story that seems so apparent is not always the one that unfolds. The twists and turns that follow are sure to keep you guessing and laughing.
About the Author:
Rhys Ella, lover of all furry four-leggers, grew up in small town West Virginia surrounded by cats who believed they were dogs and pint-sized dogs with personalities larger than life.
Today, Rhys lives in North Carolina with her husband, young son, and a fish named Hobo. An avid runner, the book's concept came to Rhys during an evening run but did not fully come to fruition until the passing of her beloved fourteen-year-old pug, Prince Kato Chang.
Actor Kato Rhyan, was named "Cutest Pug Alive", and now he's living large in Beverly Hills, well he's trying to. With his little pudgy brother, EJ, running around and causing problems. As a result of this, he doesn't really have the time for all the pampering that he so desperately wants. When he gets the big break he has been waiting on, the one role that will actually win him an oscar, he is over joyed at the thought of his dream finally coming true. The only thing that doesn't appeal to him about the whole idea, is that he is told he will have to receive botox injections. Sounds a bit strange since he is a pug and wrinkles kind of goes with the territory.
Poor Kato is at a crossroads, does he give up himself in the name of all things dreamy or does he stick to his guns and stand strong amongst all uncertainty? E. J. is such a handful and he was my favorite character!
