Gracias, the Thanksgiving Turkey

Joy Cowley, Author, Joe Cepeda, Illustrator Scholastic $15.95 (1p) ISBN 978-0-590-46976-0
Miguel has two worries about Thanksgiving: Will his Papa, a trucker, make it home in time? And will his pet turkey become the entree? This crackling tale is set in New York City, where Gracias, the turkey, takes walks on a leash, is stolen, recovered and, when blessed by a priest, is thankfully deemed unroastable. Cepeda (The Cat's Meow) captures the story's sunny disposition with gaily composed, Latin-flavored oil paintings. Ages 4-8. (Oct.)
