Terrific Turkey Tales

It's time to talk turkey. Thanksgiving turkey, that is. Here are a few of my favorite picture books starring our feathery friend. :)

Turk and Runt: A Thanksgiving Comedy

Turk's parents are proud of him.  He's the biggest, strongest, most graceful bird at Wishbone Farm. "He's a dancer," says his mother. "He's an athlete," says his father. "He's a goner," says his little brother, Runt. But no one ever listens to Runt.  Will Runt keep his family safe this holiday season?

Run, Turkey, Run!

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching.  The farmer is 
searching for a plump bird for his feast.  Turkey must find a place to hide.  If he can't outsmart the farmer, there’s only one thing left to do, outrun him.  Run, Turkey, run!

A Plump and Perky Turkey

It's Thanksgiving time in a small town, but all the turkeys have skipped town.  The townspeople need turkey for their feast.  They devise a clever plan lure an unsuspecting turkey to town. Peter takes the bait, but will he fall for their trap?

Turkey Trouble

Turkey is in trouble, BIG trouble.  It's almost thanksgiving, and he's the main course.  After many hilarious attempts to conceal his identity, Turkey comes up with the perfect disguise. 

Speaking of disguises, aren't these little turkeys the cutest?
