just okay

Although the illustrations are cute and colorful, the story was just okay. Some points bugged me as a cook: e.g. the chickens are supposed to be making salsa so get tomatoes and onions, but salsa really needs chiles or it's just chopped tomatoes, you know? It is clever how the other animals build on the previous items, though. The end pages at the back have recipes, but the way the library cover is taped down you can't see the salsa recipe (which the other two depend upon). And since the front end pages are different, you're out of luck. Your own salsa recipe is probably more tasty than the chickens' recipe (especially if they leave out chiles!), so go ahead and make that if you are inspired by the book.
