This book is about the detective-like Nancy Drew and her clue crew, as they embark on solving the Thanksgiving thief mystery. Foods that have been prepared for the Thanksgiving pageant have been mysteriously destroyed, and only a single feather has been left behind at each of the crime scenes. Nancy and her friends diligently do detective work, and eventually solve the mystery. Two wild turkeys are the culprits. As a young reader, I was a huge fan of the Nancy Drew series. When I checked this bo...more

We've been reading through this series fairly steadily. We skipped ahead a bit to read this one fairly close to Thanksgiving (although we ended up not reading it until three weeks later...oh well). And now we'll go back and pick up the series where we left off.

Cute mystery but sometimes found myself thinking this books it too politically correct and stereotypical at the same time. Not all Oklahoman's that are Native American's make fry bread and know how to teach Native American dancing.
I liked it but it could have been a bit more secretive. I figured out who destroyed all the things for thanksgiving towards the very begining of the book. A good book for ages 8-10

Simple short!
