Toodles the turkey hates her "gobble," and she decides she'll trade it in for another animal's more pleasant sound. "She asked the duck for his Quack/and the goose for his Clack/the crow for her Caa-aaw, the ca t for Mee-oow/And they all said 'No Way!'" By the end, though, Toodles has used her hated "gobble" to save the day! With lively rhymes and b right, funny illustrations, this is a hilarious and endearing lesson i n self-acceptance and self-esteem.

Kindergarten-Grade 3-Weiner's mediocre attempt to teach children about self-esteem falls flat. Toodles the turkey bemoans her appearance and, more than anything, her awful "gobble." She tries in vain to coax the other critters to give her their noises. When a menacing hawk circles low to snatch the turkey chicks from the barnyard, Toodles heroically marshals her scrawny legs, ugly brown wings, and irritating "gobble" to scare the predator away. Though the turkey performs a brave deed, thus recognizing her worth, readers will wish for a better beginning. The ink-and-watercolor cartoon illustrations are ordinary. Stick with Don Freeman's Dandelion (Viking, 1964) for a superior title about individual worth.
