This one illustrates Child's poem with a story about a turkey family going to their turkey relative's house for dinner, getting chased by a hunting dog and a hunter, and finally arriving at their destination and eating a Thanksgiving feast (it looks like the turkeys eat fruits and vegetables for those worried about cognitive dissonance!).

The illustrations are nice, large, full of movement, have lots of interesting perspectives. It's cute. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689876351, Hardcover)

Over the river Mama, Papa, and Baby Turkey embark for their vegetarian Thanksgiving Feast. But when a hungry boy and his dog start sniffing around, the turkeys have got to think fast before they become the main course!

Acclaimed artist Derek Anderson's glorious autumn artwork adds heaps of holiday humor to Lydia Maria Child's classic Thanksgiving song. And readers of all ages will be wondering who gobbles up whom until the dessert finale.
