Review:

The Know-Nothings are all set to celebrate Thanksgiving by serving a turkey dinner. But that unruly fowl doesn't seem to want salad, potatoes, or even squash--so what are they to do? Luckily, the farmer they got him from said they could return the turkey if it's not good. And this turkey is definitely not good. In fact, he's downright rude!

The Know-Nothings--Boris, Morris, Doris, and Norris--could give Amelia Bedelia a run for her money in the well-meaning-but-bumbling department. Doris sews together beans to make string beans, Boris mashes potatoes with a sledge hammer, and Morris dresses the salad in--you guessed it--a frilly little pink number. The hapless turkey is probably wondering if a more traditional fate might be simpler for him.

This easy-to-read story, with its goofy pictures of the foursome and the troubled turkey, is a real treasure for readers just launching into independent reading of chapter books. Kids will love picking up on the preposterous misunderstandings of the lovable Know-Nothings. (Ages 4 to 7) --Emilie Coulter
