Upchuck is a cat and his best friend is another cat named Tom. Chuck and Tom always make fun of the dogs in their neighborhood. They think they have a perfect life making fun of the dogs, going to Luigi's Restaurant to have spaghetti, and having each other as best friends. Then one day, Tom's family moves away and Chuck gets depressed. One day, Chuck falls into Rotten Willy's yard and the fun begins. This story really gets the point across that you shouldn't judge people before you know them. Read this book to find out what happens to Upchuck and Rotten Willy.

I think this is a very funny book. I really like it because it's about animals and I love animals. This isn't like any other book I've read because the animals? story is told by them and from their point of view. This book does have a sequel called, Upchuck and the Rotten Willy: The Great Escape. It's similar because it is also about Upchuck and Rotten Willy, and it's different because Tom isn't there. I liked this book.

I do recommend this book because it's really funny, the characters will make you laugh! If you like cats or dogs, you would love this book.
