Casey and Bella Go to Hollywood is about two dogs named Casey and Bella who go on an adventure in Hollywood. Their owners leave them in the hotel room when they go out for the evening, so Casey and Bella sneak outside to explore on their own.

During their adventure, they meet many new animals and have fun exploring Hollywood and Beverly Hills. They meet a Siamese cat named Roxy who offers to guide them on their tour. When they get to Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, they meet a wealthy Cocker Spaniel named Holly who takes them in her limousine to a movie premiere. All of this sounds very exciting and glamorous, but in the end, Casey and Bella learn that you don’t have to be rich and famous to be happy. Your own true friends and your loving family are what counts the most.

After returning to the hotel room, their owners arrive after they do. When they are watching the nightly news, guess who they see on tv? Casey and Bella!

I recommend this book to kids ages four to eight. I like that the author made the story rhyme. It sounds very cool when you read it out loud!

I hope you read this book!
