Who Would Win? Lion vs. Tiger by Jerry PallottaMy 6 year old son is completely obsessed with the books in this series. He has requested to own every single one. This specific book is very good, and while my review is generically referring to all the books we’ve read in this series, I unreservedly give this specific one 5 stars. Very well done.
The premise is engaging enough: what if two equally matched and ferocious creatures met and engaged in a fight? Who would win?
I love that the illustrations and maps are detailed, accurate, and realistic. I appreciate that it isn’t just a hypothetical story, but the book is filled with facts about each animal’s strengthens, weaknesses, abilities, and habits, and then asks the reader to make a guess as to which animal they think would win in a fight based on the information given.
But then the hypothetical fight story at the end is always exciting and riveting (without being bloody or gory).
Even I find these books interesting and exciting to read. But finding something that will get my six year old to read over and over and love it every time? That is priceless.
