This nonfiction book tries to answer a question that, according to my search on Google, is quite regularly asked, which is if a lion and a tiger got into a fight, who would win? In order to try and answer that question, comparative information on both beasts, such as their environment, living arrangements, and physical features (the actual sizes of the teeth and claws are shown) are discussed in very short, simple paragraphs one each page (one to two maximum), along with information text boxes.

Because this was a Scholastic edition, the binding and image reproduction were not high quality, and there is no reference list, but it is a quick pick for the reluctant reader and those fascinated by animals. There was a mildly amusing admonition, alongside cute photos of cubs, telling the reader they could not have a tiger cub because “when they grow up, they will eat you!” (p. 23).

Age range recommendation: 4-8 (with someone to read to the youngest of this group).

Subjects/themes/curriculum connections:
• encourages further research because the “who has the advantage” (p. 32) checklist listing physical and other features (such as intelligence) that the reader can fill out cannot be completed by reading this book alone.
• Animal studies
• Teaching comparisons and categorizations ( )
