Turkey Monster Thanksgiving







Turkey Monster Thanksgiving , by Anne Warren Smith is a  read for the 3-6 grader with a traditional Thanksgiving feel for the less than traditional family. The main character, Katie's mother has gone off to be a country-and-western singer, so Katie, her father, and her three-year-old brother, Tyler, have to fend for themselves.  They usually spend Thanksgiving lounging in their pajamas, munching on pizza and popcorn, and watching football on TV. When her perfectionist classmate Claire Plummer taunts her with pictures from Beautiful Living of perfect celebrations, Katie starts to think that a grand dinner would help cement her family together, but she is embarrassed about her brother's rude table manners.  Katie finds herself inviting her teacher for Thanksgiving dinner and she and her dad scramble to make things happen and chaos ensues! An easy-to-digest holiday fare. -Aurora
