Diary of a Pet Turkey

by Joanne Ingis , illustrated by Binny

Turkey Diary



Based on a true story, this is a delightful tale of a suburban family and their pet turkey. Joanne Ingis takes readers on an unbelievable journey, from the hatching of the egg, to the naming of the turkey, to its incorporation into the family’s daily life. Young readers will love the story of a turkey being cared for, rather than eaten at a holiday dinner. A perfect Thanksgiving gift that is sure to appeal throughout the year.
