Just like kids this time of year, the farmyard animals are all yearning for Halloween candy but no one will give them any. All the animals look to Turkey for a solution because of his past successes with costumes. Using the human Trick or Treaters as their inspiration, the animals offer one suggestion after another to Turkey who tries them all. The illustrations come in great here because you can see that Turkey does his best to act the part as well as wear his cobbled together costumes. We see him leaping like a Swan-Lake-worthy dancer as he lands on the farmer's doorstep with a tutu of chrysanthemums, prima ballerina's aloof expression, and his candy basket out. Each time a member of the farmer's family refuses him with some pun like "ho-ho-no" to his pirate costume. But Turkey is crafty and finds a way, of course! A great book for school or library storytimes and sure to be a family favorite.
This book is so funny! The story line is adorable. All the farm animals want to trick-or-treat just like the kids because they LOVE treats too, but can't quite figure out a way to get their hands on the sweets. In a series of dress-ups and clever ideas, they fail to trick the adults into giving them candy... that is, until they decide to go to their neigh-neigh-neighbors (who happens to have bad eyes). Alas, the costume is so good that she..... okay, I won't ruin the ending for you. Trust me, though, you won't be disappointed. The illustrations are adorable and the facial expressions on the animals are spot on (and so expressive). What a sweet new Halloween book and JUST IN TIME! I'd give it more stars if I could. :-)
A funny and cute story on how all the barn animals wanted Halloween candy. They and turkey came up with a plan on how to get candy. Read it today to find out what the came up with to get candy. Debra H.
All of the Turkey books are wonderful, and this one is no exception! Wendi Silvano keeps children interested with her silly and fun story of Turkey trying to disguise himself as a Trick-or-Treater to get candy, while Lee Harper's illustrations bring Turkey and his friends to life. This author/illustrator combo never disappoints. My four-year-old (as well as my ten and eleven year old kids, although they would be reluctant to admit it) loves this book, and so do I!
