'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving

'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving

by Dav Pilkey Illustrated by Dav Pilkey

The incomparable Pilkey adapts the classic Christmas poem to tell his wacky Thanksgiving tale. The day before Thanksgiving, eight boys and girls take a field trip to a turkey farm. They have fun playing with eight exuberant turkeys but are shocked to learn that Farmer Mack Nuggett plans to kill all the turkeys for Thanksgiving dinners!  So the children decide to smuggle all the turkeys home, and all their Thanksgiving dinners become vegetarian this year. The turkeys' lives are saved!
