There Was a Turkey on the Farm

A brand new picture book from beloved author illustrator Valeri Gorbachev.

Turkey is bored! She can’t find anyone to be friends with on the farm—hen is too busy with her chicks, rooster crows too loud, and who could be friends with goat who has a beard and horns?

But when Turkey ventures off the farm to find a friend, she meets someone who would love to be her companion: sly, hungry fox. Will her farm friends save her?

Valeri Gorbachev’s indelible sense of humor and heart make this a wonderful book for the whole family!
