Rocky is a dog, and Sterling is a cat, but there is a sole problem. The latter thinks he is a dog and behaves like one. When Sterling was born, Mom put him on the cat tower to play with his fellow felines, Katie and Pumpkin. However, that was not to happen.

Instead, Sterling wanted to cuddle and spend time with Rocky. Even more baffling, he refused to use the litter box and wanted to go potty like Rocky. Thus, Rocky taught Sterling how to behave like a dog. The latter desired to play with a bone and go for walks with a leash. But Rocky was supposed to inform Sterling he is a cat and not a dog from a young age. Did he? The more time they spent together, Rocky enjoyed Sterling’s company.

One thing I insanely loved was the actual picture of Rocky, Sterling, Katie, and Pumpkin. They’re all adorable, especially the dog. I can now understand why Sterling wanted to spend time with Rocky. While getting the PDF of this book, I wondered why it was such a large file. Thankfully, the illustrations speak for themselves. Every page was simply breathtaking! For that reason, I award the work 4 out of 4 stars.

There were not any grammatical errors. We have an exceptionally well-edited novella. The more I read about Rocky and Sterling, the more addicted I got to the duo. Despite the latter performing unorthodox undertakings, the duo’s affection was contagious. Being a tail chaser was probable the funniest of all.

There wasn’t a single thing to dislike. Though Katie and Pumpkin are hardly involved, the few times they did so were captivating. I thought it would have been pleasant for Mom to be included in the picture, too. I recommend My cat brother, Sterling by Mayra Hernandez to kids fascinated by pets, particularly dogs and cats.

It’s funny to visualize he cuts following your dog. I would like to know how little sterling got to know he’s a cat.

Pets and kids are an adorable pair. I hope there were some moral lessons kids learnt as well. Wonderful review, short and sweet.
