Paws and Whiskers was an amazing book! It is filled with stories about cats and dogs from all different authors...
e.g. Michael Morpurgo, Philip Pullman, Malorie Blackman, Francesca Simon, Anne Fine, Patrick Ness, Dick King-Smith, Noel Streatfeild, Lewis Carroll, Enid Blyton and even two stories from Jacqueline Wilson herself! However, each of the stories only have one chapter in this book!

I would reccomend this to 7-12 year olds.

Disappointing collection of mainly (very) old stories about cats and dogs. Whilst many of these will be new to young readers, it's a shame that we can't celebrate more of our newer authors instead of rehashing Enid Blyton, Charles Dickens, Kipling, Kathleen Hale, Noel Streatfield, Richmal Crompton etc. Yes, there are some current authors as well, but most of those are also reprints of existing stories - for such a good cause it would have been nice for authors to have written new stories.

Also interesting that there are more cat than dog stories! Sandwiched in the middle is a section of me and my pets by authors.

This is a very good selection of animal stories by a huge number of authors. They range from a page or two long to quite long. Many different animals are the subjects of the stories. Children who like animals will love it. The age range targeted is about 8 to 13 although older children and adults with an interest in animals will like it too. Jacqueline Wilson's name appears prominently on the cover and it would be possible to think the book was by her; she is, in fact, the editor but there is a story by her in the book.

My eldest daughter is an avid reader and absolutely loves this book. We bought her a kindle last year and yet she prefers still to read "Real" books as she calls them. I asked her (bearing in mind she has just turned twelve) why she prefers "Real" books and she replied "Books have soul".
My daughter loves these books and if they are good enough for her they are good enough for me :-)

In my opinion this is one of the best things JW has produced. I am not hugely keen on her fiction normally (although my 9 yo is) but the stories in here are lovely and my 9 yo loves to read them aloud to her 4 yo brother - - they both like animal stories - It is fab value at the price and would make a great gift.
