Kids who love wicked humor will gobble up this tale of a trickster sheep and a comically gullible turkey. Ewww! Little Baa Baa is bored. So when Quirky Turkey comes along, the opportunity to make mischief is too good to resist. What s that? asks Turkey, pointing at a suspicious something on the ground. What s what? That there. This here? Yes, that there. Oh, it s just a pile of . . . smarty tablets. Ohhh. . . After a well-sustained buildup evoking hilarity and disbelief, this kid-pleasing trickster tale will have readers both groaning and laughing out loud at the payoff.
