Thanksgiving Turkey Trouble

Series: Ready, Freddy! (Book #15)
by Abby Klein Illustrated by John McKinley

It's a Thanksgiving disaster for Freddy Thresher!

When Freddy's first-grade class begins planning the annual Thanksgiving play, everyone will have a role. Freddy's friends are all happy to be Pilgrims and Indians, but there is one part that nobody wants to be -- the turkey! Freddy hopes he won't get the part, but — you guessed it — he gets the unlucky role. Now Freddy has to find a way to play the turkey while everyone is laughing at him.
