    This book is super awesome. Which do you like? Cats or dogs? I have a cat and dog so it is hard to choose. The book teaches about dogs and cats.

      the five star rating I'm giving is not for the book, but for cats. Cats are definitely better than dogs and it was super sucky that this book ended in a tie. Cats are cuter, funnier, prettier, more independent, and smarter that dogs!

        This book was boring. I knew pretty much all of this in a longer bigger book. Do not read this terrible book! I think dog and cats are equally the best as well!

              Overall I think dogs should win because they were the first animals we domesticated, over 15,000 years ago and they can hunt, help disabled, military work, and save lives untrained or not.
