I found this book at a thrift store and didn't hesitate to buy it. I love finding new stories to read during the holidays and thought this would be a fun addition to our Thanksgiving book collection. The Silly Turkey Party is a pretty silly story. It did make my girls laugh. And overall, I think they enjoyed it. I think the story was okay and liked it. I just didn't feel completely invested in the story.
After reading it, I have realized that it is part of a book series and definitely not the first book. While I think you could read this one (like we did) without reading any of the others, I do think you learn more about the main characters in the other two books: The Great Turkey Race (2006) and The Amazing Turkey Rescue (2007).
Even though we didn't read the other two books, we still liked reading this story. Though I do wonder if we would have liked this one more if we had.
