This is one of those food-chain books where the bigger animals are chasing the smaller animals. There is a lot of room in this book for interaction with the child. Very quickly they learn which animal comes next. It is a long book and the child will have to exhibit some patience. But nobody says you have to read the whole book at once. This is a good addition to a child's library.
I personally bought a used book. There was one page that had a dog ear in it. Other than that, the book felt brand new. Very happy with this purchase.
I find this book holds up after the years we have had it in our family, to the multiple reading with my granddaughter. It is wonderfully written, with illustrations that are great! That pig!! what a page.
I hope you enjoy this as much as my family. No violence, except at my granddaughter's age, I said hurt instead of kill. I feel the message of communication and aiding is more an important lession than showing a man with a gun. Remember ET? trying to remove the guns? How pointless that was?
