    One thought on “Turkeyton Town”

    1. What a wonderful 'quirky' story to share with kids and adults alike on the holiday weekend! Get into your rhythm and rhyme; collect your friends and have a great time. This story spins a whole new perspective for your Thanksgiving dinner. Enjoy :)

    2. What a happy coincidence, I read this on Thanksgiving Sunday! I had giant grin plastered on my face from the first line. By the end my mouth dropped open, although I certainly won't ruin anything, I'm feeling pretty excited about this evening's Thanksgiving Feast. :) You might say it whet my appetite.The illustrations were perfectly suited to the playful story and quirky rhymes. I found the whole story fresh and not at all what I expected. A creative book to push the limits of your imagination. [...]

    3. I never really grew up reading stories about Thanksgiving but this one was absolutely delightful! The witty rhyming scheme kept it lighthearted and fun while the subject matter was unexpectedly macabre. The darkness, rather than ruin a children's book, is reminiscent of a Lemony Snicket book, all of which I enjoyed reading as a child as well as an adult. Overall this was an immensely enjoyable tale that will be sure to elicit a few giggles.

    4. D. Melhoff, thank you for this frightening delight of a book. Parents, read this to your little ones only after the Thanksgiving turkey is fully cooked. ;)
