What would it be like if there were no turkeys for Thanksgiving dinner? That is the dilemma the people of Squawk Valley were in when they couldn’t find a turkey for their Thanksgiving feast. The nearby turkeys had gotten smart and disappeared when the autumn leaves were in the air. Then Ebenezer Beezer comes up with a plan to hold a turkey art fair and invite all the turkeys in the area to come be models for the artists. They posted signs all around saying, “Model Wanted A Plump and Perky Turkey”. Will Beezer’s plan work? Will the people have a turkey dinner for Thanksgiving or will they be eating shredded wheat?
A Plump and Perky Turkey is a cute picture book written in rhyme by Teresa Bateman. It was illustrated by Jeff Shelly. It also has interactive links for perky turkey fun and activities. Enjoy!
