Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—On Zook's farm, a naughty goat steals a hat from a horse, watermelon from the pigs, straw from a cow, then a dress and pie from Mrs. Zook. Everyone is quite annoyed, assuming Tucker has been a typical goat and eaten everything. At the end, however, they see that he has dexterously used the items to create a scarecrow to protect his beloved corn in the field. The title refrain will keep audiences engaged, and sharp eyes will catch details such as Tucker's modification of the "don't feed the goat" sign to his advantage. Van Patter's digital illustrations are brimming with action and expression amid simple scenes, though some backgrounds seem smeared and the pinks are somewhat garish. It also seems odd that the cover features three grumpy pigs, rather than the star of the tale.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA

When the reader begins this book, one believes it will be another story of a naughty goat. Actually, the first time I was reading the book, I believed the goat was eating all of the things he took from the others. However, when he stole the sundress, I was wondering how he would eat that... but I suppose anything is possible?

One thing that I did appreciate about the story is that the farm is owned by Mrs. Zook (a female farmer). How easy would it have been for the author to have written this story with a man as the farmer, in stereotypical fashion? I appreciate that the proprietor is a strong female, especially when she "went to get her goat." This is important for young readers to see women portrayed in strong, leadership positions like this. I applaud the author (obviously a man) for making the effort to portray a woman like this.

At the end of the story, the reader is surprised to find that Tucker made a likeness of Mrs. Zook out of all the things he had "stolen" from the other animals. The reader can imagine the pride that Mrs. Zook found in seeing this likeness. She could have been very angry, but instead she tells Tucker "Next time you need something, Tucker, just ask." Once again, this teaches young readers to ask when they need something instead of stealing from others, even with good intentions.

This is a delightful little book and it makes me want to seek out other books by the same author. Keep up the good work

Bought this for our 3.5 year old daughter for a Christmas gift. It has become her favorite. She loves me to read it to her. She like the surprise at the end - hard to find a children's book that has a bit of drama and suspense that a child can get their mind wrapped around.

The artwork is very detailed and rich. We had been reading the book for a few weeks before we noticed some hidden Tucker surprises on several of the pages. It really enhanced the story and my daughter loves each night 'finding' Tucker like a game of hide-and-seek.

I like the story as it has enough complexity to intrigue a young mind, but not overly complex. It has a good moral and all the elements are positive and beneficial. The artwork captures very good body language and facial expressions, and has provided good material for us observe and explore these facets of communication.

Tucker Took It! is a book that children will love to read over and over again. My boys are 8 and 5 years old, and they both enjoy the colorful illustrations, and the surprise ending! I was particularly taken with the detail of the illustrations. The expressions on the faces of the farm animals are priceless! The play on words that Mrs. Zook uses provide a way to teach children about how authors use language. I highly recommend this fun book!

I find Tucker to be an absolute delight. Bold, energetic illustrations complete the story of a seemingly naughty goat with a big heart. Children become enthralled as Tucker gets himself into more and more trouble while the grownups snort and snicker over the underlying puns. This is a great read for toddlers and young children while encouraging good heartedness, sharing, forgiving and the power of asking nicely for things.

Tucker Took It is a predictable book with a twist, enchanting children through the elementary levels and their teachers/readers. The twist is an important point-judgement is best left unti all the facts have been gathered! I loved this book with its dynamic illustrations and superb depictions of the barnyard animals' reactions to Tucke's predictable-goat behaviors.

Waiting for more children's books from this author!
