Anyway, when we read the book, we all loved it! I've read people's reviews about how violent it is and all I can say is that how violent it actually is, has a lot to do with the tone with which it is read. I don't believe that a 3 year old will look at the page where Meathook tries to get Herb to take the wild boar meat and say " Hey look - there's blood dripping off that thing!" I really think you can read the book in it's entirety without promoting violence. I really didn't see anything gory about it, but that could have something to do with the fact I'm a surgical nurse in a trauma center and I see real gore. This book is great because the art work is gorgeous and the story promotes tolerance and acceptance - I think that is one of the most positive things about it and I think that it's one the author's ideals for this book.It's more important to teach our children acceptance and tolerance than it is to teach them that vegetarianism is the only way. But that's a whole other story in itself. p.s. My 15 year old loved this book too!
I initially purchased this book because my 5 yo son couldn't understand if it was right or wrong to eat meat (we're vegetarians, obviously) and this book was the perfect way of explaining things to him. It's a great and fun way to help kids (especially boys) understand tolerance. Also, he really likes that 'Herb' is a vegetarian just like us.
