In this delightful tale, based on a true story, a suburban family adopts a wild turkey and raises it by hand. Joanne Ingis takes readers on an unbelievable journey, from the hatching of the egg, to the naming of the turkey, to its incorporation into the family's daily life. Young readers will love the story of a turkey being cared for rather than eaten at a holiday dinner! A perfect Thanksgiving gift that is sure to appeal throughout the year.
