Abstract:

As November approaches, the thoughts of Americans everywhere begin to turn to the same essential holiday elements: home, family, coming together, love and the joy of giving thanks. Teddy Slater imagines these thoughts are shared by humans and no-so-humans. In fact, he imagines the holiday as it may be experienced by the central Thanksgiving feature: the turkey bird. With his wacky, rhyming text and Ethan Long's equally zany, cartoon-like illustrations, what a holiday it is! The Turkeys are hosting the feast, and their whole family is arriving from all over. The birds engage in the usual frenzy of cooking and cleaning, welcoming and visiting, hugging and kissing, thanking and singing and then feasting ... on what? The subtly-foreshadowed but thoroughly clever conclusion to this fun little story is simple, laugh-out-loud genius. Slater and Long remind us that the holiday does not need to be all pious pilgrims and cornucopias; this would be a good, irreverent addition to any Thanksgiving holiday collection.
