A Plump and Perky addition to your Thanksgiving

Are you looking for a fun and memorable Thanksgiving book for your family? Well, A Plump and Perky Turkey by Teresa Bateman is the perfect book for this time of year. It is a humorous, detailed picture book for readers of all ages. You will love the alliteration and rhyme that Teresa uses. Jeff Shelly, the illustrator, creates very detailed, colorful work. Spread over the page are fall colors and patterns that definitely catch the eye.The townsfolk of Squawk Valley have no turkey for Thanksgiving. If they can't find one to cook, it will be shredded wheat for all. When Mayor Beezer has the idea of an "arts and crafts show" to lure a turkey, Pete the Plump and Perky Turkey shows up. Will the citizens of Squawk Valley have a true Thanksgiving dinner, or will the plump and perky turkey outsmart them all? I recommend this book to everyone who likes cute, amusing picture books. I first read this book when I was in preschool, and now my family pulls it out every year to enjoy. You can find this book at your local library. Hope your family loves it as much as we do!


That looks like a good book!
