To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have read this book about 30 times now and it’s growing on me but honestly it rubbed me the wrong way at first. I just didn’t like that the whole book focused on how the farmer could potentially eat all of the animals. Kind of disturbing for a toddler/me. I guess I don’t like to think about the food on my plate as a previously friendly animal down on the farm. I do, however, love pizza so I like the ending although other reviewers didn’t care for that part.
I bought this in hopes for a cute funny thanksgiving story. I thought maybe the turkey would realize he was a pet or he was loved like the horses and sheep. I thought maybe even the turkey would do something to make the family thankful for him and decided not to eat them. Not the case, the turkey does come up with a plan to prevent his death, but there isn’t really a “happy” ending or a thankful lesson/moment.
My Grandson got his book in a timely manner. He was excited about it, but kept looking thru the paper in the large box. My Daughter said the box was excessive in size compared to the size of the book. My Grandson was happy about his book, but was disappointed there was nothing else in the big box.
This book is pretty good with a cute story. Unfortunately, I started with the book 'Turkey Clause' by the same Author. Turkey Clause is a bit of a better story and has better illustrations in my opinion; so, my expectations were high. Nonetheless, this is a good book, and I'd recommend it and Turkey Clause for little ones around the holidays.
