‘Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving

‘Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving         by Dav Pilkey

Published by Orchard Books of Scholastic Inc in 1990.

night-thanksgivingYes, Dav Pilkey of Captain Underpants fame has given elementary aged kids another good laugh.

‘Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving is a ridiculous look at a class field trip to a turkey farm. The kids fall in love with the turkeys and then learn of their Thanksgiving fate. While the farmer and teacher try to figure out how to calm the students, the kids themselves coordinate a rescue mission for their new turkey friends.

It’s silly.

It’s cute.

It’s Dav Pilkey for sure.
