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.
