The Mystery of the Working Animal

The file label: "Work or play?" What's the difference between working animals and pets? Kyla sends a message by carrier pigeon and visits a re-created 19thcentury village where horses pull carriages and plow fields. But E.B.'s clue leads to a dog spa, where dogs are dressing up for a birthday party. Talk about pampered pets! With Tilly's help, the kids discover that many animal jobs have been replaced by technology, so now the animals we own are usually pets. Instead of having them work for us, now we often work for them!
