Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

TURKEY TROUBLE is an exercise in silliness, and the whimsical idea here, as well as the warm, earth-toned illustrations on watercolor, make for a fun read. Kids are likely to giggle over the various ways Turkey tries to pass as a pig, or a horse, or a rooster, and parents can get in on the fun of talking about how quick-thinking this bird is when it comes to saving himself.

It could also be a launchpad for discussion of where our food actually comes from. But here the tone is silly, light, and free-spirited.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
