REVIEW for On Parade

Thank you to the wonderful Fitzhenry & Whiteside Limited for sending me this book.

TITLE:                  On Parade

AUTHOR:             Rob Laidlaw

GENRE:                Non fiction

RATING:              3 Stars

On Parade is the kind of book that I have incredibly mixed feelings about. It is important that someone be brave enough to write these types of books, but I have to say that reading this book was so difficult.

The author takes an honest and hard look at just how animals are treated in the entertainment industry and, unfortunately, it is about as bad as I thought it is out there.

The book is obviously well researched and informative and this is definitely "need to know" information, but wow, I wish the world was a way different world when it comes to the way it treats these beautiful animals.

I will never think of the circus the same way again after reading Water for Elephants. Friends of ours went to see the Royal Lipizzaner Stallions recently and invited us to go and I wouldn't go because I was worried about the treatment of the animals. I have a feeling this book would upset me.
