LOVE the book - the message, the gentle way of relating the animal industry and the sadness of the animals involved. It's a wonderful book for children and is benign enough that friends of mine who won't pick up other animal-issue books will look at this one, if for nothing else than the illustrations which are fabulous. It's a message you just cannot argue with. I'd strongly recommend it for anyone who wants to help their child grow to be a conscious consumer/eater.
I have wanted to order this book since it came out in May, and then found it on Overstock.com for such a reasonable price that I couldn't pass it up! Both my 10 year old and my 22 month old love the book. The story is just great with such a wonderful message to children and adults. The illustration is beautiful. I would recommend this book for anyone! The shipping was very timely (received after only a week and a half!)
