Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Turkey is in trouble. Bad trouble. The kind of trouble where it's almost Thanksgiving . . . and you're the main
course. But Turkey has an idea--what if he doesn't look like a turkey? What if he looks like another animal instead?
After many hilarious attempts, Turkey comes up with the perfect disguise to make this Thanksgiving the best ever

Wendi Silvano's comical story is perfectly matched by Lee Harper's watercolors.

   Read it after dinner
This is a cute book, and my niece and nephew really enjoyed it. They asked me for a book I ordered 2. It was their favorite. The book was well drawn and easy for the kids to memorize, and felt like they were reading along. The only reason I did not give it five stars was because it made one of the kids refuse to eat turkey and we had to make her a little pizza instead. My suggestion is to read the book after dinner.

A clever turkey who doesn't want to be part of Thanksgiving dinner!

   A Little Morbid, Very Repetitive, But Entertaining for Kids
Fair warning this book likely won't go over well with a kid who isn't familiar with farming lifestyles or is too comfortable with the fact cute animals are eaten as meat. For those who are not scared by that, I do think this is a cute enough book with a pleasant surprise ending. The original work was okay, but the new stuff is just not great. The storyline itself is incredibly repetitive in a way that only gets annoying fast.

   Thankful grandma
That was pretty impressive, isn't it? I've purchased this book twice. We're having a blast, said the mother of the 8-year-old. In response to your inquiry, we asked librarians to take your political views out of a children's book review. It's a great story, too, without any apparent hate or animal abuse. A light hearted story with excellent art and costume design, Hughes said. 0 1462228 3171201 This was a very good story, with excellent story and costume design, Hughes said. A very smart, kind turkey who uses wit and concern for the other farm animals as he tries to save not only himself, but the other animals from being the feast, said Farmland spokesman Eric Gay. Turkey is thankful he found the chicken, Bruno said. I'm so thankful to have been able to share this book with my granddaughters and another very special little boy, Raymond said. Thanks to these writers, we can relax and have fun with the children we love most. The Beatles' manager Paul McCartney said the band's days are numbered.

   TURKEY TROUBLE BOOK
It was a mistake, and I had ordered it for my grandchildren. I know they will have such a blast with this story and the illustrations, too. I love the new look of the magazine. This is a great story for preschoolers. Young readers will enjoy the book, too, with its many illustrations of children's faces.

   Fun & Engaging
A turkey trying to eat its way to Thanksgiving is a great idea. My daughter absolutely loved it and I couldn't stop reading it. One of my sons read the book on his own and also loved it. He also wants more books written by Robert Hein, Pauley and Michael Powell. Thanks for the book.

   Book about eating friendly farm animals - disturbing
I have read this book about 30 times and it's growing on me but honestly it rubbed me the wrong way at first. I just didn't like that the whole book focused on how the farmer could possibly eat all of the animals, he said. It's disturbing to think that a 2-year-old could do that. It's just that I don't like to think about the food on my plate as a previously friendly animal. I do, however, love pizza so I like the ending, even though other reviewers didn't care for that part of the story.

   Cute but not quite the ending I was expecting
Very good book, with large, lively illustrations by Lee Harper. It was a blast to pick the Turkey out of its many disguises. But she could see how she was first thrown off when the pizza delivery arrived. As a parent, I liked how the author incorporated common exclamations with the animal in focus like "holy cow" when Turkey dressed up as a cow and so on. It's just that cute play with words, Mr. Rule told us. It also highlighted the need for empathy and consideration for others when turkeys realize that their actions may affect his friend rooster. I have absolutely no literary credentials to speak of a book's storyline, but I would have wished the ending had been something where turkey didn't get eaten by pizza delivery, Mr. Dhaliwal said.

We're huge fans of Turkey Claus, so we went looking for another book about him. Both are a favorite in our house. nan
