Today’s Thanksgiving book review is Thelonius Turkey Lives! by Lynn Rowe Reed. Here’s what it’s about:
Every Thanksgiving, a turkey disappears from Felicia Ferguson’s farm. And this year, Thelonius Turkey is the only turkey left. So with only a week to go before Thanksgiving, Thelonius won’t sit around waiting to be stuffed and roasted–he’s not going to the chopping block without a fight! So begins one determined turkey’s hilarious campaign to save his own neck. This zany Thanksgiving comedy will have readers rooting for Thelonius all the way to the very end–where they will be as surprised as he is with Felicia’s holiday plans.
This is another save the turkey story, slightly unique from the others but not more interesting. I did like the ending and the abstract illustrations.
My Rating: 3 out of 5
