Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this delightful tale, based on a true story, a suburban family adopts a wild turkey and raises it by hand. Joanne Ingis takes readers on an unbelievable journey, from the hatching of the egg, to the naming of the turkey, to its incorporation into the family's daily life. Young readers will love the story of a turkey being cared for rather than eaten at a holiday dinner! A perfect Thanksgiving gift that is sure to appeal throughout the year.

Review:

"A proud turkey chronicles her life from her time as an egg onward, with sidebars providing facts about the species. Named 'Magic Marker' by her adoptive human family, due to her squeaky peep, the turkey first lives indoors, eventually moving into an outdoor pen. Despite the nature of the conceit, the turkey's narrative is rather reportorial. Ingis's attempt to make Magic Marker a pet, a family member, and a resource results in some uncomfortable moments: when Magic Marker lays an egg, the family's human mother declares it her 'grandchild,' but it's fried up for breakfast on the next page. Binny's pen-and-ink cartoons bring a quirky vibe to this offbeat story about the value of family pets. A blank notebook is included for readers to create their own pet diaries. Ages 5 — 8."
