Book Review: ‘Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving

Posted on Updated on

‘Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving

written and illustrated by Dav Pilkey

Ages 5 & up, 32 pages

This was a delightful Thanksgiving book that followed the story and rhythm of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. Students are on a field trip and they stumble upon a farm with turkeys. The children and turkeys are excited to meet each other and gobble and giggle together. However, a problem arrives when they notice the farmer has an ax and he states that the turkeys will soon be a Thanksgiving feast. The children secretly leave the farm a tad rounder and save the turkeys from a terrible fate. ‘Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving was a fun book that I’m sure most will laugh.

And then in a twinkling 
They heard in the straw
The prancing and pawing 
Of each little claw. 
More rapid than chickens
His cockerels they came. 
He whistled and shouted
And called them by name:
“Now Ollie, now Stanley, now Larry and Moe, On Wally, on Beaver, on Shemp and Groucho!” 
                                          – Dav Pilkey (‘Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving)
