    Scary book for youngsters, horrifying message for unsuspecting parents.

    Ugh! Pass on this one! My daughter brought this home from her Pre-K library. We both were drawn in by the flashy artwork. Our family has a small flock of spoiled pet egg-laying chickens and I am sure that is why our dughter chose this book. The story has a pro-reading theme where a chicken saves her beloved chicken friends from slaughter by reading a map, the address of the slaughter house on a can of soup, and the sides of trucks. The pro-reading theme however is harshly overshadowed by a violent and scary vegetarian "Meat is Murder" message. The chicken warns her pig friends that they will be turned into sausage, and warns her cow friends that they will be hamburger. When she gets to her chicken friends, the slaughterhouse describes how a chicken is beheaded, plucked, andkilled etc. etc. to scare children into feeling that eating meat is wrong. My daughter asked questions like "Why are farmers so mean? Do we have to eat chickens?" She was filled with anxiety after reading this book. While I respect the authors pro-vegetarian message, she could have kept the gory details to a PETA rally and presented vegetarianism in a gentler, kinder way fro children. I will be asking the school to remove this one from the Pre-K library, it's too scary for younger kids.
