Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 1 Matthew was having a silly day. Even his mother called him a turkey and said, ``You're much too silly today.'' He digs a hole in his mother's garden to trap the midnight turkeys. That night when the turkeys follow Matthew's arrows to the hole, they do indeed jump in, now willingly trapped with Matthew's comic books and toys. After eating pizza with the turkeys, Matthew invites them to his house and eats them for breakfast. Silly cartoon illustrations accompany the plodding narrative. There's nothing here to make children care about Matthew's adventure. Much better fantasy adventures for the picture book crowd are Dick Gackenbach's Mag the Magnificent (1985) and Harry and the Terrible Whatzit (1978, both Clarion). Stick to these and to others in which the imagination is challenged. Sandra L. Miller, Morgantown Pub . Lib . , W.Va.
