The Pet War Book Review

PetWars130The Pet War by Allan Woodrow

“There are two types of people in the world: dog people and cat people. Dog people are clever, friendly, good-looking, funny and overall fantastically wonderful. Cat people, on the other hand, are ugly, boring, and smell bad. I’m not making that up – those are the facts.”

Otto is a dog person. His older sister Lexi is a cat person. They both want a pet. Their mother petwaragrees if Otto and Lexi can prove their responsibility. They must earn $500 towards their pet by the month’s end, keep their grades up, do chores around the house, and take care of the winning pet. Sounds easy, right?

Well, responsibility isn’t Otto’s middle name. Right off the bat, Lexi has charts, posters, and tutoring positions to rake in the cash. Otto has a little more trouble figuring out how he can earn money. Becoming a magician? Selling apples? Working at a grocery store? Nothing pans out the way Otto hoped, and time is running out! He has to think of something, anything, fast – or else he’ll be living with a new addition to the family not of his choosing.

Who will win this war, the cat-lover or the dog-lover? Read a sample chapter and let us know in the Comments what you think . . . and if you are a cat-lover or a dog-lover!!

    I have this book, and I loved it! And still loves it. Showed it to my BFF, and she said that it also looked interesting. Out of a 1-10, I’ll give it 8.5. It’s not too bad for an animal book, since I love animals such as horses, cats, dogs, and a lot more. Wish that this was a series(or is it?). You guys gotta read this book!!

    I think that this book is kind of like “The Lemonade War” by Jacqueline Davies. Also, I am a dog lover. GO DOGS!!!

    I would vote for a dog because it is cute, cuddly, and awesome and it can fetch and it can play with you but cats all day long they sit there and lie down there and all they do everyday is sleep lie down and eat everyday but dogs they wake you up and they are already ready to get started for that day.
