OK this is weird. Lotsa reviews for this book, mostly really positive! Although a lot of hesitance about the ending, which I get. The ending didn't bother me. What bothered me is this is really extremely similar to Flap Your Wings by P.D. Eastman and why don't I see more people mentioning this.
Either it's meant as an homage, which, OK? Or it's just a direct lift? Which is bogus? I suppose the third option is that the author is unfamiliar with Flap Your Wings and just happened to write a book about a bird who comes across an egg and hangs out until it hatches and it turns out to be an alligator? I mean what is going on here, is my question.
