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.
