The story ends surprisingly, but youll have to read to find out who wins the battle of the neightbors! I gave this book a rating of 4 stars. I could see why they would fight but for me, it was difficult to understand everything in the book. The language was okay, it was not spectacular in one bit. The illustrations were to die for though, they were just the right amount of color every where and looked very authenic. I would not want this in my classroom, only for the simple reason being that if I had a hard time understanding, imagine how the children would be.

    Personal Reaction- Great book on Japanese culture and food that comes from Japan. Easy read with interesting vocabulary and the main character goes through many difficult things but still dances and stays positive. Purposes: Yoshi's Feast would be good for 2nd-3rd graders. The vocabulary used is unique to Japanese culture and would be good for students to get familiar with. Words like "hibachi," "eels," and "sizzling" give this book an edge and would be good at broadening students vocabulary.

A great purpose for this book to be used in the classroom would be in a culture lesson, especially the Japanese culture. The illustrations use traditional clothing of Japanese culture and that gives students great perspective. The story also has a great moral of staying true to yourself and staying positive. Could be a great book to use in the classroom when there is a bully situation or when students need a confidence boost.

    I loved this story so much because of the humorous writing and the wonderful message: You get what you pay for! It's a folklore about two feuding neighbors. Yoshi, a fan maker, smelled delicious eels caught and cooked by his neighbor Sabu, and refuses to buy them. Yoshi doesn't want to spend his money on Sabu's eels, and would rather smell them as he eats his rice. Sabu is angered by this and writes up a bill for Yoshi as well as cooks stinky samma. Eventually they come to an agreement that bene I loved this story so much because of the humorous writing and the wonderful message: You get what you pay for!

Curriculum: So sweet and funny, as it touches on how some times, we must sacrifice as well as come to an agreement when in conflict.

    Yoshi's Feast is a story picture book about 30 pages long with about a paragraph on each page. It follows a characters named Yoshi who stays positive and dances though there is negativity around him. The vocabulary has educational words on Japanese culture and also great onomatopoeias when he is dancing. The illustrations are very geometric and expand the readers knowledge on Japanese culture even further. This book would be a nice addition to a cultural unit.

    A story that takes place in Japan. Every day Yoshi's neighbor Sabu catches and cooks delicious eels. But nobody comes to Sabu hibachi because it is out of the way. Yoshi does not want to spend his money on the eels; instead he enjoys the smell with his rice. Sabu is upset by this so he makes stinky samma. Yoshi and Sabu come up with a agreement that benefits them both. A great story about Japanese culture.

    I read this for a library storytime this summer with a theme of folk tales from around the world. This is a folk tale from Japan. It was a touch too long for a perfect storytime book, but I read it first and it seemed to mostly keep the kids' interest. I particularly enjoyed the detailed illustrations and the resolution to the problem between the two neighbors.

    I just loved this book. When my kids weren't in the mood to read it (we got it from the library), I would read it myself. I loved the artistic drawings - seemed to be paper art. It tells a well-known story about two warring neighbors who fight over customers and then grow to work together and have fun. The way this book is typeset and the way the graphics are, it just is so fun to read!

    An adaption of a traditional Japanese folk tale. Yoshi's neighbor makes the most delicious smelling broiled eels in Yedo, but he is too cheap to buy them so he enjoys them vicariously. His neighbor Sabu believes that Yoshi is the reason that he is poor and demands payments for the delicious smells. So begins the feud until they find a way out their differences to their mutual benefit.

    Yoshi loves broiled eels. His neighbor Sabu makes and sells broiled eels. Yoshi believes his neighbor should share the leftovers. Sabu believes Yoshi should pay for them. But Yoshi is too stingy to pay. After a hilarious dispute involving Yoshi paying for the smell of the eels with the sound of his clinking money, they both work together to bring Sabu more customers.

    This book is about Yoshi, who loves the smell of his neighbor Sabu's roasted eels. Being cheap, he will never buy them, until one day Sabu begins cooking the stinkiest fish instead of the eels. Yoshi attracts a crowd to come to Sabu's hibachi for his eel. Then, as friends, they share the eel each night. This book is funny!

    While reading this book to my daughter, I smelled of delicious smoky, broiled eels which made me drool. I also danced with my daughter on the sound of coin jingles. Chin Jara Jara.. Chin Jara Jara, this book will entertain you with its cultural wit and sense of humor.

    This book is really funny. A great read aloud as it has sounds which make students want to dance along. Yoshi and his neighbor Sabu have a feud. They finally solve it in a peaceful way. Not a bad message for young and old alike.

    So fun! I very cleaver book about a Japanese fan maker and his neighbor a chief. Great lessons, fun sounds, and lively illustrations. Some of the words were a little hard to pronounce though so you might want to double check before using for story time.
