Booky Advent Calendar 2017 Day 6: "The Turkey That Voted for Christmas" by Madeleine Cook and Samara Hardy (OUP / Oxford Children's Books)

Booky Advent Calendar Day 6 is a fun romp that's guaranteed to have younger readers awwing and oohing at the wonderful animal characters within...
There's serious business afoot in "The Turkey that Voted for Christmas" by Madeleine Cook and Samara Hardy.

On Pear Tree Farm, all the animals love a vote - they'll vote for almost anything in fact!

 When it comes to Christmas though, the turkeys always ALWAYS vote 'No!' 

This year though, things are going to be different as Timmy Turkey, for some bizarre reason is so in love with the idea of the festive season that he decides to vote YES!

He really wants to bring festive cheer to the farm, and decides on the ultimate selfless act, lending this cute story a solid moral message for the season too.

This is such an appealing, timely, and funny seasonal story, perfect for families preparing for Christmas (though you might feel like skipping Turkey this year after reading about Timmy!)

"The Turkey that Voted for Christmas" by Madeleine Cook and Samara Hardy is out now, published by OUP / Oxford Children's Books (kindly supplied for review).
