Description

No sweet treat today! Those yummy-looking blackberries are out of reach. But Turkey Tot has found some string. He asks his friends to help him find a balloon so they can float up to the berries. But the friends find the idea preposterous. "He's been different since the day he was hatched," says Hen. Turkey Tot doesn't find balloons, but he does gather two cans, a hammer, and nail--and voilà! Stilts help Turkey Tot reach the berries. Budding engineers and other creative-minded kids will love Turkey Tot's optimism and can-do spirit.
