Fiction/Picture Book

Silvano has written her fourth in the Turkey Trouble series, with another holiday setting, Easter.

When Turkey spies a sign advertising an Eggstraspecial Egg Hunt, Turkey and his fellow farm friends want to go to. But, the problem is the egg hunt is only for kids! So Turkey, Sheep, and Cow devise a plan for Turkey to attend and find that special egg to win the prize.

Of course, all kind of hilarity ensues and things don’t turn out for Turkey. Each of his disguises is discovered and Turkey realizes he won’t find the special egg…until they try one last idea.

The farm animals all have to work together to solve their problem and then they all get to share in the special prize at the end. The animals are incredibly silly and the costumes will make kids giggle. This is a great read-aloud full of opportunities for voices and parents will find a hard time reading it without laughing. The writing is clever and parents won’t get bored reading this one.

The animals’ and kids’ expressions show their true determination to get the egg and the shock when they are found out. The unique characteristics given to each animal are so fun to see on the pages. No detail is left behind and children will love looking at the pictures as much as hearing the story.

Don’t miss this enjoyable picture book for your child’s Easter basket!
