A Lesson in Being Helpful
When the King of Scone holds a pie contest, every knight wants to win! But what happens when Princess Petunia gives up her oven to help another Veggie?
At first when I found out that there were going to be VeggieTales I Can Read! books I became very excited. However after getting my hands on this one I have mixed feelings. The story is great with some humor and a great moral compass as far as that is concerned I love it. What I do not like is that the artistry does not reflex the VeggieTales that I know and love and considering that VeggieTales is an animation I found this to be odd because I would assume that it would transfer well to a page. The colors seem to be slightly off, but more so it’s the shapes.
Either way, it would not keep me from looking to buy the others, it was just surprising is all. I still love Big Idea, Inc and Zondervan for publishing such great and refreshing books for growing learners.
*I purchased this book at a local indie bookseller by the name of Cover to Cover. I highly recommend the shop, the owner is super nice and knowledgeable about her stock. Also I would like to thank Zondervan for introducing me to the series and publishing them.*
