Are you a cat lover, or a dog lover? Or both? Either way, talented author and illustrator, Steve Jenkins, can please you. This informative 'flip book' lets you look at, learn about, and admire both species. His unusual illustrations of cut and torn paper collage are as delightful, and unique, as they are in his many other titles. With both subjects, he traces their history, their partnership with humans, and other interesting facts, biggest, smallest, fastest, and oldest. Did you know cats are the only animal that can purr, and purring actually helps sick or injured cats heal? Or that in a three-mile race, the Saluki is the fastest mammal on earth? Each section ends with reasons why cats or dogs are considered smarter. I've been owned by six of each, and still can't decide!
