In The Cats & Dogs of London, an interesting and entertaining children's book about the rivalry between cats and dogs, the title character, Will, becomes the object of the desire of a group of rival and suspicious cats. As the story unfolds, Will finds himself in the middle of a game of cat and dog as the other creatures are trying to protect themselves from Will and his "pet."
This is a great story for young readers who want to learn about animals and their lives and the ways they try to protect themselves. The author does a good job of keeping the story interesting throughout. At the same time, though, it is easy to see why this story could be viewed as more of an allegory about the conflict between humans and animals than an actual story about a pet and its owner. The author does an excellent job of making the reader feel sympathy for both pets and owners.
While the author does make some references to animal cruelty, he does not take the issue to an extreme that would justify his use of violence. Instead, it is easy to see that in the future, cats and dogs will share their homes and interact as they do today.
Animals can be very loving and friendly animals. They can make some of us very nervous when we spend too much time with them.
I would encourage young children to give cats a chance to get to know their owners, even if they don't always understand the reasons behind their fears. There are many people who would probably be uncomfortable taking in another animal, but I don't believe that this would apply to pets and owners.
The Cats & Dogs of London are a great book for children to read and for parents to read to their children. It is full of humor and entertainment, but also has some educational lessons about how animals live in the world. I recommend this one to anyone who likes to read.
