Children's Book Review: Beauty and the Beaks: A Turkey's Cautionary Tale

Beauty and the Beaks:  A Turkey's Cautionary Tale
Written by Mary Jane and Herm Auch
Published by:  Holiday House, 2007
32 pages

Beauty and her friends think Lance is the most conceited bird in the hen yard. From the moment the turkey arrives on the farm, he spends his time swaggering around the Chic Hen beauty shop, boasting that he is the only bird invited to a special feast. Determined not to let Lance ruffle her feathers, Beauty practices her favorite eggsercise—flying—and accidentally discovers just what kind of guest Lance will be at the feast. Can Beauty come up with a plan to save Lance before his life eggspires?

* I think this book is geared for kids a little older than my 3 and 5 year old.  The use of "egg" words got a little redundant after a bit.  The authors made the characters out of clay and hand-sewed the outfits.  The kids loved the pictures, especially the hens getting their "nails" painted. I personally found some of the hens a little scary looking.

Family Rating: 1 thumb up.
