Turk and Runt: A Thanksgiving Comedy 

by Lisa Wheeler, illustrated by Frank Ansley

Ages 4-6, 32 pages


Turk’s parents are so proud of him. His mother believes he’s a dancer and his father believes he’ll make a football player. Nobody listens to his brother Runt who continues to state that Turk looks juicy and ready to be roasted. A ballet instructor and football coach visit the farm and desire the best turkey. Well, Turk dances and tackles to impress them. Runt puts on a disastrous display and nobody picks a turkey, because they think they’re crazy. Finally, his family believes Runt and they prepare themselves when others visit the farm searching for a turkey.

      You mean the turkeys you see don’t dance and have glasses? 🙂 Thanks for your comment!

I'd love to hear from you! Have a great day!
