Do you like plucky puns? Do you have a fowl sense of humor? Well, fluff up your feathers and get ready for fun. Turkey Riddles, the sixteenth book in Katy Hall and Lisa Eisenberg's best-selling series, is stuffed with jokes and riddles that kids will gobble up.

Find out what you'd get if you crossed a turkey with an octopus. Discover why Tom Turkey climbed into the vegetable bowl. To help you guess the answers, Kristin Sorra's illustrations provide hilarious clues. 

 * My kids have recently really gotten interested in riddles and jokes.  I saw this book at the library and thought they'd really enjoy it.  It's part of the Puffin Easy-To-Read series but it's a Level 3.  Some of the decoding and vocabulary was a little difficult for my 4 year old beginning reader.  However, when my 6 year old daughter got ahold of this book she was very interested in reading it on her own and asking us the jokes.  I have to say that the humor is definitely for older kids.   A lot of the punchlines they just didn't understand (he hit a fowl ball, Cluck Kent, etc....).  Even though it's in the Easy-To-Read series, I'd recommend the humor more to a 3rd grader +.

This book was borrowed from the library.  

Family Rating: So-so.
