Annotation: Turk is the glamour boy of Wishbone Farm-- the biggest, strongest, most graceful turkey in sight. While everyone else says Turk is a dancer or an athlete, his little brother, Runt, says Turk is a goner. But no one ever listens to Runt. Even without his glasses, he can see Turk's fate. When November comes, Runt stages a fit, gobbling like a maniac, and saves his brother with antic cleverness. Full-color illustrations.

Publisher Description:
Turk's parents are proud of him, the biggest, strongest, most graceful bird at Wishbone Farm. "He's a dancer," says his mother. "He's an athlete," says his father. "He's a goner," says his little brother, Runt.

But no one ever listens to Runt -- even after people with seasonal plans and roasting pans begin showing up at Wishbone Farm, or even after the juiciest turkeys are chosen, one by one. "Chosen for what?" Turk asks. No one wants to hear Runt's answer. But you will laugh at what he has to do to get his family's attention. They are, after all, turkeys.
