Turkey Trouble

Every year at Thanksgiving, a turkey is pardonned by the President at the White House.  The protagonist of Turkey Trouble faces the same dilemma:  he does not want to be a table centrepiece on Thanksgiving.  He devises a scheme:  why not dress up as another animal?  He attaches a brush to the back of his head and wears a saddle, but no one believes he is a real horse.  Then he disguises himself as a cow, pig, sheep and rooster, all without success.  Farmer Jake, thinking that the turkey has escaped, suggests that maybe they should eat a rooster for dinner this Thanksgiving.  This story is written by Wendi Silvano and beautifully illustrated by Lee Harper.
