As he did in GOBBLE IT UP!, Jim Arnosky has created a charming picture book from a catchy, spoken-word song that is a favorite in schools everywhere. This humorous song, filled with factual information about turkeys is fun for Thanksgiving -- and all year around!

This will make a great combination with Jim Arnosky's All About Turkeys.

Here is a sample verse:

I'm part of a flock of 102--

Wild Turkeys!

Every one!
