Budding cat fanciers will love hunting down the TRUTH about their favorite animals in this innovative early reader.

Cats were domesticated before dogs, right? That's a LIE! The TRUTH is, dogs were living with people for 10,000 years before cats ever were! Though this engaging early reader is 100% fun, 25% of it is FALSE! In a unique Q&A format, proficient readers are quizzed about cats to see if they can separate facts from "lies." The book's mascot--the Truth Sleuth--guides readers through this funny and fact-packed book, which features photos and illustrations of a wide variety of felines.

Step 3 Readers feature easy-to-follow plots about popular topics, for children who are ready to read on their own.
