Review
  • Fronis adapted the nursery rhyme “This Little Piggy” for Easter earlier this year in This Little Bunny, and she gives it a Thanksgiving spin in this upbeat board book featuring a house full of turkeys preparing for the holiday. “This little turkey went to market,” Fronis begins, as the turkey father heads out the door with a wicker basket. Inside, “This little turkey swept the floor,” as grandpa sends up clouds of dust. Blanco’s bright, cartoony artwork helps establish a mood of down-on-the-farm cooperation as the turkeys work and play. Rest assured, the meal that lands on the table on the final spread is strictly vegetarian. Ages 3–6. Illustrator’s agency: Bright Literary. (Sept.) --Staff (Reviewed 08/29/2016) (Publishers Weekly, vol 263, issue 35, p)
  • A board-book twist on "This Little Piggy" has turkeys making the preparations for the family feast. The text echoes the familiar rhyme, even beginning with "This little turkey went to market." Readers already introduced to standard animal-sounds books will wonder what happened when they get to the end and the turkeys sound a lot like the final piggy, singing, "We…we …we... / …wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!" What happened to "gobble-gobble-gobble"? Furthermore, the in-between activities feel selected to suit the rhyme scheme rather than logic: why would a turkey knit a sweater, and what does that have to do with Thanksgiving? Blanco distinguishes the turkeys from one another with clothing and comb style, but they all have the same wattle and chubby wings/arms. Gender stereotyping is incompletely avoided. A turkey in a fedora goes to market, while a turkey wearing a baseball cap and trousers with suspenders "swept the floor." Both male and female birds help set the table, but turkeys in dresses and pompadoured combs mind the little turkeys until supper is served, knit that sweater, and eventually call everyone in to eat. A bit of a turkey itself. (Board book. 2-4)(Kirkus Reviews, November 1, 2016)
