Turk and Runt, A Thanksgiving Comedy
by Lisa Wheeler, illustrated by Frank Ansley
Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 2002

A laugh-out-loud story about a family of turkeys at Wishbone Farm.

Turk, the star son of mother and dad, was groomed to be the best and the first.  Mom, sure he would be a famous dancer, made him practice each day.  Dad, sure he’d be a famous football player, made him practice each day.  But younger brother, Runt, was a bit smarter and knew the only future for Turk was a Thanksgiving dinner.  As visitors arrive to select their thanksgiving meal, Turk does everything he can to be chosen, while Runt does everything to nix his brother’s removal.

Full of one-liners, it’s a hilarious read
