    Don’t eat people, December 6, 2004

    I adore this book, and my five year old delights in it as well. The message is excellent — some people (and dragons) like to eat meat, some people (and dragons) like to eat veggies, and no one should eat people. I like that it isn’t the least bit preachy. I happen to be a vegetarian, and my husband and child are not, and it isn’t about one kind of eating being better than another, just different. If you have a “mixed” eating family like mine, or if your meat eating child has vegetarian friends, or your vegetarian child has meat eating friends, or if you enjoy any well-written, well-illustrated children’s book, then this book belongs on your shelf.

    beautiful art but mixed messages, December 28, 2002
    By 
    AineMama (Texas) –

    …is just beautiful–the art throughout the book is the same colorful, vivid style as on the cover. However–there’s a lot of text which makes it somewhat tedious for beginning readers, and I was rather shocked by both the text and pictures–even though the protagonist is veg, the book’s message is more about tolerance for others’ choices then portraying any one dietary choice as better than any other. … This book leaves out the “why” of vegetarianism, which is for many parents the main thing they are trying to make clear to their children when buying a pro-veg book such as this. My personal qualms with the foggy message and the violence depicted are such that if it wasn’t for the AWESOME artwork I would consider actually getting rid of it….

    What a great book!!!, May 27, 1999
    By A Customer

    I was amazed when a fellow friend and I stumbled onto this book. The details in the pictures are great and the book has an excellent message for children. At the time, I hesitated buying it, but after thinking about it for awhile, I have to get this book. Being a vegetarian myself and having numerous friends who are raising vegetarian children, this is a great book to give them. It shows that it is ok to be different. Thank you both for writing such a great book.
