Lion vs. Tiger

(Who Would Win?)

4.26  ·  Rating details ·  369 ratings  ·  49 reviews
If you stripped the fur off these two giant cats, they would look identical and only a special person could tell them apart. The big difference is the tiger hunts alone and the lion is a pack animal.

They live on different continents. This fight would never happen in the wild.

The penta-star rating is the result of coercion and has not been selected using free will. I am under constant supervision from my progeny when assessing these books. There is real pressure to inflate my fondness for this book series. With that said, I did enjoy this required reading more than the others.

The realistic illustrations, maps, and facts found in this book help children to learn about both lions and tigers. The author compares fun facts about life span, food, hunting style, and even shows the actual size of the animals' claws. All of this leads up to a child-appropriate account of the epic battle between lion and tiger, but who will come up victorious? This series is a great way to get kids interested in reading non-fiction work. ...more

who do you think would win? Tiger or lion?

A totally awesome series. The kids love it. Also, apparently I’m awful at choosing the winner of these battles. I’m 0/2...
My 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 realisti

In this Non-fiction book the Author Jerry Pallotta and the Illustrator Rob Bolster take us on an adventure of facts. Using facts about each animal to not only give us information about each animal. But to also give us some informational hints to take a guess about who will win. The author gave us everything up to fun facts, precise size, facts about the body and more! While the illustrator gave us something to look at after reading. Everything up to fun pictures, example objects used with the bo ...more
Who would win? Two different animals, but not so different after all. The fight between a lion and a tiger. One is stronger than the other but if so do still think it will win? Who do you think would win? If you want to find out more, read the book and see who would win?

I really would recommend this to anyone interested. It is based on animals so if anyone who is interest in animals then I would probably most likely recommend it to that person. It was cool learning some facts about these 2 anima

The book lions vs tigers is about the two and how the fight at the end. They both have disadvantages and vantages both are very strong. The tigers are alone and shy and by themselves most of the time when they come in contact with other tigers they are friendly to each other. But with lions if you are not a part of the group you are a bad guy to them. At the end they both fight and the lion won the fight.

I thought the book was good and very cool. It would be a good book for someone that wants to

There are several in this series of "Who Would Win?" I looked at Woverine v. Tasmanian Devil and Hornet v. Wasp. Each series provides information about each type of creature and explains what they use to protect themselves or attack others. The author doesn't provide an answer to the question, but rather a checklist at the end to help the reader determine who they think would win.

Great for classroom library of 3rd through 6 grade. Could be used in a science study of particular animals or insects

I love these books. They are powerful tools for capturing reluctant non-fiction readers hooked. For third and fourth grade library time I read this aloud and then let the students check out all the rest of the books in this series. To make it more fun, I had each student predict who would win and sit on that side of the room. As I read, they could switch sides if they changed their minds. It was great fun!

In this book the writer describes both a lion and a tiger, he tells how they are different in size, shape and color. He gives the sizes and the sizes for female and male for both animals so you can have a back ground of how both animals are. The author goes into details about how tigers purr between their roars and that a tiger’s roar is not as loud as the lions. The illustrations are very well drawn and life like. This book is full of information about who is strongest and how tigers and lions ...more

A colorful and engaging non-fiction series surrounding the features and skills of two animals debating who would win in a fight. This book provides descriptions of two different animals listing the pros and cons of their natural instincts and defenses. Moving along through the book provides the readers information in order to make an informed decision before reaching the end of the book.

I did not like this book because they gave all false information.This book tells that lions could defeat tigers.Lions could defeat tigers but tigers win 70% of the time. So this book is kind of bad,I would reccomend it to people who like lions.

My brother read this book and asked me to write his review...

Why did the lion win? The tiger should have won-it had the size advantage. That book was a joke... I felt the facts were not correct.

I love the way this series captures the attention of our little boys. Great animal facts (body weight, tale of the tape, diet, habits, teeth, claws) and then a fictitious fight at the end. The suspense!!

It’s the ultimate battle, lion and tiger, who will walk away the winner? That is the basis of this children’s nonfiction book. I made a prediction before opening the pages of this slim, colorful, paperback and by the time I finished reading I had learned a few things and I had found that my prediction was wrong according to this book.

Inside this book, the author compares the lion and the tiger side-by-side on each two-page spread. He compares their color, their size, their territory, how and wh
