Reviews

Summary: One morning, while out in the barnyard, Max (a dog) heard Beryl (a hen) making lots of noise. When she left the hen house, he ran up to see what was going on. Beryl had laid an egg. Try as he might, he couldn't keep away, and gulp! he ate the egg. This went on for days. Then one night, the doglins arrived to take over. Not only were the going to take Max's things, they were going to start stealing Beryl's eggs. With that, Max realized his mistake and decided to do something about it. He ousted the doglins and asked Beryl for forgiveness. This is a picture book about recognizing right from wrong, accepting the consequences, and doing the right thing.

Big Kid Reaction: This is a well-crafted story. The story's lesson is an important one, and the way the author brought Max's thinking back around is very clever. It isn't until he decides to protect Beryl that he sees just how wrong he was. The illustrations are wonderful, and Max's face is very expressive.

Cons: None, really. When Max seeks forgiveness, you don't hear his apology or his motivation, only Beryl accepting the apology. The author wrote this very effectively without bogging down the story, but it would be nice to know what prompted Max to keep stealing eggs.
