      This is a really fun Thanksgiving story The premise is the one you ve probably seen many times before the poor turkey realizes he is going to be on the menu for Thanksgiving dinner and he has to try to save himself What sets this apart are the funny disguises the turkey takes, trying to blend in with other farm animals, and the clever word play I think kids will really enjoy this As a vegan, I am personally not very fond of the turkey in trouble scenario but in this case, it worked for me The en [...]

      I heard about this story through Julie Hedlund s 12 x 12 pb challenge It is a funny story and the m.c Turkey has great imagination to survive Thanksgiving The illustrations by Lee Harper are great, too Especially the farm animals illustrations and turkey s costumes I will definitely buy this one for my grandkids but will have to save it till this year s holidays.

      WOW hat a clever and funny turkey storyWhat a cute and creative idea this was and besutiful illustrations I would just make a suggestion to have a larger print than this font style was as it was hard to read between such tiny print and it being then so difficult to be able to distinguish from the background as well So for these reasons, this is why I recommending this for a rating of four stars and for younger kids to have their parents or older persons in their lives to read this to them I rece [...]

    13. Teri on said:

      I love the illustrations in this book It is quite similar to Run Turkey, Run by Diane Mayr The turkeys both try disguising themselves as animals I had to see which came first Run, Turkey, Run was written first from what I could see I was just curious The endings are different There is text in the Turkey Trouble book Both are cute I also got the Christmas version, Turkey Claus which is also written by Wendi Silvano and illustrated by Lee Harper.

    14. Sarah Kasper on said:

      Turkey Trouble is a cute story that will have students using their prediction skills the whole way through Turkey is trying to survive the Thanksgiving season, in order to do this, he tries to disguise himself as different animals I would ask students to predict which animal Turkey is going to try and disguise himself as next Repetition would also be a concept to teach using this story And of course, this would be a cute story to read during Thanksgiving time.

    15. Sarah on said:

      The turkey is getting worried when it comes time for Thanksgiving He goes around trying to disguise himself as different animals, but it never quite works His final disguise is looking like a rooster, which works well, but when the farmer can t find the turkey, he decides to eat rooster Panicking, the turkey comes up with a plan to be a pizza deliverer, and brings them pizza to eat instead for dinner It works, and turkey has his best Thanksgiving ever Very funny.

      Hilarious The text and artwork both are cute and make this timeworn story concept really fresh again The cadence and repetition of the text makes for great read aloud potential says the children s librarian The artwork really got me chuckling though I think kids will love identifying all the parts to each costume and trying to guess how he will play each successive animal I have to say that the ending surprised me with a very ingenious solution to the problem I got this book as an ebook deal but [...]

      This book was a huge hit The story of this Turkey trying to avoid being eaten for Thanksgiving had me and the kids laughing out loud The illustrations are terrific and make the story lively and energetic I would highly recommend this book to anyone and even though it is set at Thanksgiving time it is a story that can be read all year long.

    25. Jeani on said:

      Great to read to younger children, preschool K, great repetition and for asking children to notice things in the picture that are unsaid in the text Also a nice way to start a conversation about alternatives to Turkey what do families eat on Thanksgiving, etc
