From the Turkey's Perspective...

Three funny selections to read aloud as Thanksgiving (a.k.a. Turkey Day) draws near:

Beauty and the Beaks: A Turkey's Cautionary Tale by Mary Jane Auch
Lance the turkey is proud to be invited to the farmer's Thanksgiving Day feast until he learns that he's the main course! How will he hide? Beauty the hen and her pals at the Chic Hen Salon come to Lance's rescue with the perfect plan.

Run, Turkey, Run! by Diane Mayr
It's that time of year when Turkey must do a mad dash around the barnyard to save his skin! Will he be able to elude the farmer this time?

Turkey Trouble by Wendi Silvano
This turkey desperately tries a series of hilarious disguises to escape his fate. He dresses up as a cow, a pig, a rooster--all to no avail! Finally, he has a "Eureka!" moment and tries one last disguise...

And one more--but from a mouse's perspective...

One Is a Feast for Mouse: A Thanksgiving Tale by Judy Cox
As the family takes a post-turkey snooze, mouse decides to make his own feast from the leftovers--taking just one of everything. How will mouse balance his growing mountain of Thanksgiving food?
