Turkeys Never Gobble

Joan Holub. HarperFestival, $5.99 (24pp) ISBN 978-0-06-008091-4

Rollicking quatrains and charming animal characters will attract young readers to the quirky holiday etiquette board book Turkeys Never Gobble! by Joan Holub, illus. by Jennifer Beck Harris. A sample: ""Rhinos never run/ around the table and act rude./ Porcupines do not poke fun/ if they don't like the food."" The pictures tell the real story: the rhino child tries to bolt from his chair, while the porcupine pantomimes his disdain for the broccoli before him.
