The Pet War Book Review

Posted by at 1:36 am in Reads | Permalink

The 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!!

  3. cat person

    I do not agree with this. I am a cat person and I disagree and find that offensive.

  5. bullblack1848

    I’m more of a dog person because one of the main reasons is that i’m allergic to cats and the other reason is that i’m active and cats….. aren’t so active.

    Dogs are more better people say and I agree,but if there’s a war between which is better,I would say dogs

  7. cat lover

    I HATE THIS BOOK I LOVE CATS AND I AM SMART GOOD LOOKING A FUNNY AND LIKABLE AND I SMELL VERY GOOD
    signed- the cat lover

  8. Animal Lover

    ANIMALS ARE SUPER IMPORTANT IN OUR LIVES, THEY HELP US WITH FOOD, LIKE EGGS, MEAT, MILK, AND MORE, AND THEIR POOP IS MANURE, AND I HAVE A LIST WHY ANIMALS ARE AWESOME BUT IF I COPIED IT DOWN THIS COMMENT WOULD TAKE UP MOST OF THE PAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Animal Lover

    well, cat only won cause dog (otto) gave enough money so Lexi could win. Also, Otto still got a dog in the end, so both kids were happy

  10. Animal Lover

    Both animals and both kinds of animal people are cool. I like dogs and my sis loves cats but we are both kind of the same. neither of us are more fun (although, probably me :D ) and neither of us are boring (maybe my sis, just MAYBE :P ). Although, our personalities are defined by what pet we like. My sis is independent and self-reliant like a cat, and I am energetic and playful like a dog. Cat people and dog peoples’ personalities are defined by what pet they like or have.

    I read this book last year! I is really good, and I might as well read it again. I would recommend this book to someone who likes to have a good laugh, and someone ages 8-12. This is an amazing book and I hope you’ll read it too!

    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!!!

    Just kidding all of the words that emeraldtiger931 was me it was not me and someone else it was just me. LOL :)

  17. emeraldtiger931

    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.
