Cute children's book

The book was short and cute. I loved the ending and the illustrations. The jokes at the end were fun, too.

What smells so good at Thanksgiving? Your nose. Yes there are jokes in this funny book. I chose the story to share about Jerky Mcjerkface. These stories are for ages 6-12 and grades 1-5.

The adventures of a turkey versus a hunter. Who will win?

I enjoyed all five of these neat Thanksgiving stories regarding
Tom the Turkey and Jerky the hunter ! And such a neat turn around and a happy ending for both of them. I would recommend this ebook especially for kids but even us older ones
could enjoy it and perhaps learn something also on reading it,too!
This is why I felt it could use five stars. I received this ebook for free and here is my honest review in return. Good job Arnie! By Ange
