‘Twas the Night Before ThanksgivingBy

The incomparable Dav Pilkey adapts Clement Moore's 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!

It’s Fall and class trip time!
Eight adventurous young students set off to visit a farm in the country and come home with a surprising new love for turkeys. How will the teacher respond? And the farmer? In a wonderful and whimsical turn of events, the turkeys become part of everyone’s Thanksgiving celebration – as invited guests instead of main dishes!
I really enjoy books like this that are simple and fun and incorporate kids of various colors and nationalities into a lively story. This is a sweet, funny, light-hearted book, perfect for reading as part of Fall festivities.
