King’s contribution is vital to the re-imagination of animals raised, caught, or processed for food. She focuses on one type of food animal per chapter: insects and arachnids, octopi, fish, chickens, goats, cows, pigs, and chimpanzees. King first explains the cultural and historical significance of why these animals are consumed.

Thus, she allows the reader to reevaluate his/her relationship with animals by making food animals more visible to the consumer.
