With its oversized 10 ½ inch by 10 ½ format, this is a great book to share with a group. The premise of the story is similar to that of my previous post, Run, Turkey, Run! But the gobbler at the center of this story relies more on brains (albeit, turkey ones) and creativity to stay off the dinner table.
This turkey looks at his fellow farm animals and tries one disguise after another in the hope that the farmer will think he’s a different animal. Children will delight in recognizing the everyday objects the turkey uses for each costume. He ties on a pair of mittens as cow ears, a scrub brush as a horse’s mane and a red glove for a rooster’s comb. But the turkey’s cleverest costume is inspired by the peppers, mushrooms, onions and tomatoes in the vegetable garden. Pizza for dinner, anyone?
