About the book:
This story is based on the true story of wild turkey that wandered into the town of Wethersfield, CT in July of 2017 and quickly became the town’s unofficial mascot, inspiring young and old. It’s a story of togetherness, love, community and giving thanks – for young readers and the young at heart!

illustrate his journey
