Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leona Illig
KC, the President's fourth-grade daughter, has an idea. Every year the President pardons one turkey for Thanksgiving, but wouldn't it be great if all the Congressmen pardoned a turkey? Then lots of turkeys would be spared from being eaten, and they could all go to Mount Vernon to live long, happy lives. KC succeeds in getting 117 turkeys pardoned, but the entire flock is stolen from a pen on the National Mall. It is up to KC and her friend, Marshall, to figure out who stole the turkeys and get the birds to Mount Vernon safely. Part of the "Capital Mysteries" series, this book is well written. The story, however, is so weak that it would be difficult for any reader to suspend belief long enough to enjoy it. It is not credible that 117 turkeys could be stolen from the National Mall with no witnesses; or that the Vice President would be in charge of hiring a van to transport the turkeys, but forget to do it; or that the President's daughter would be allowed to walk around Washington without bodyguards. The protesters, the news reporters, and most of the other minor characters are one-dimensional stereotypes. Marshall is not identified until several chapters into the book and readers unfamiliar with the series will likely be puzzled about who he is. Lastly, the turkeys are portrayed as friendly animals with feelings, which would certainly come as a surprise to turkey farmers everywhere. If the book was designed to appeal to vegetarians, then the message has been, unfortunately, garbled. Reviewer: Leona Illig
