Quick Check: "Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving

'Twas The Night Before Thanksgiving (Bookshelf)
This fun rhyming book by one of my student's favorite authors (Dav Pilkey), is a spoof on the Christmas classic, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas .

Summary from Goodreads:
The incomparable Dav Pilkey adapts Clement Moore's classic Christmas poem to tell his wacky Thanksgiving tale. The day before Thanksgiving, eight boys and girls take a field trip to a turkey farm. They have fun playing with eight exuberant turkeys but are shocked to learn that Farmer Mack Nuggett plans to kill all the turkeys for Thanksgiving dinners. So the children decide to smuggle all the turkeys home, and all their Thanksgiving dinners become vegetarian this year. The turkeys' lives are saved!

I like this book because of the rhyme and because it reminds me of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.  It is pretty long though (so keep that in mind in case you want to read it to younger children).
