"With the dogs as stand-ins for the Germans and the cats representing the Allied forces, there's the barest hint of World War I history in this fast-moving, hilarious animal adventure. . . . Plenty of jokes balance the action-packed story line, while black-and-white cartoon art graces almost every page. Readers will enjoy delving into the many maps, charts, and pun-filled humor. . . .Fans of "Geronimo Stilton" will find a winner here." --School Library Journal on Dogfight
