To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
3.0 out of 5 starsBad "joke" ending goes over little ones heads.

My son is 4 and while he enjoyed parts of the book (the turkey saying "GOBBLE GOBBLE" and dressing up in different costumes) the ending just totally escaped him. As another reviewer summed it up (perfectly): "So dressing Turkey up as Santa Claus and sending him out to deliver food and pizza was like a dead end story line for him." EXACTLY what I was trying to put into words--and my son even knows who Santa is. And if you have an inquisitive child, he will ask why the bird is worried about being killed for food...which can start a whole other conversation you might not be planning on.
So I didn't love the book, either--but will keep it around to see if he likes it more as he gets older. Three stars.
