Beauty and the Beaks: A Turkey's Cautionary Tale Reviews
Great book and fast delivery! Highly recommend for anyone who wants something fun to have.
I chose this book for a library read aloud just before Thanksgiving. I loved the play on words. 4th and 5th graders really get the play on words, and enjoyed this humorous story. It also has an Accelerated Reader test.
Pun-filled with extremely detailed illustrations. A must-have for every public library and home bookcase.
Chock-full of chuckles and wonderful play on words, Beauty and the Beaks is an egg-citing, original adventure. Author Mary Jane wrote the story and did an egg-cellent job sculpting the characters out of clay. Husband Herm took the pictures and put the book together on the computer. The end result is a dandy story about a turkey just in for a special feast.
This book caught my eye at our local library for two reasons. First, because the Auchs are personal friends. And second because their book, THE PLOT CHICKENS, is one I share when I speak with young children about how to write a story. Though written to entertain a young audience, it’s worthwhile reading for would-be story writers of any age.
The humor and artistry in this book are wonderfully memorable and so good that you'll want to share them with others. This is an excellent choice for read-alouds and story times.
This is a cute story about a turkey who joins turkeys on a farm only to discover his invitation at the "big house" is be the turkey for Thanksgiving. The chickens try to help him with hilarious results. The illustrations are quite interesting and part of the entertainment. I'm not sure how it's done but resemble stop action photography of models. The colors in the book are especially bright.
