Children's Book Review: A Plump and Perky Turkey

A Plump And Perky Turkey

A Plump and Perky Turkey
Written by: Teresa Bateman
Illustrated by: Jeff Shelly
Published by: Marshall Cavendish, 2001

The townspeople of Squawk Valley try to trick a turkey into being their Thanksgiving dinner, but are frustrated in their efforts when the turkey tricks them instead.

* Both of my kids were familiar with this book, having heard it in the past at school.  My husband and I had never read it so we decided to give it a go.  Told in rhyme, this story tells about the town of Squawk Valley where the turkeys have gotten smart and disappear in the fall.  The townspeople really want a turkey for their Thanksgiving dinner so they come up with a plan to catch one.  However, they are disappointed, when all is said and done, that they have been the ones tricked.   

This book was borrowed from the library.  

Family Rating: 1 thumb up.
