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 the family's attention. They are, after all, turkeys. And rarely has a story about them been told with such warmth and cleverness. Or with such witty pictures.
