Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving

written and illustrated by Dav Pilkey

Eight school children visit some turkeys on a farm just before Thanksgiving. Can they save their new friends from holiday tables?

In this adaptation of "Night Before Christmas" eight children on a school trip to the farm discover that Farmer Mack Nuggett has eight turkeys who will be chopped up and roasted for Thanksgiving feasts. They hatch an unusual plan to save their new friends. The characters are cartoon-like and the illustrations are full of humorous details. The facial expressions on the faces of the children and the turkeys are delightful.
