Mrs Tittles Turkey Farm

Lois G. Grambling. Legacy Words, $9.95 (28pp) ISBN 978-1-56566-054-0

Buoyed a bit by Sasaki's pleasantly cornball illustrations, Grambling's mixed-up tale is still pretty much a turkey. Children shouldn't be fooled by the kindly Mrs. Tittle who has a name and stylish-looking sleeping quarters for every turkey on her farm-she also proudly sells off the poultry to customers at Thanksgiving. Everyone's got to make a living, but Mrs. Tittle's tender touches are at odds with her money-making motives. Ages 4-7. (Sept.)
