Outskirts Press Author Talks Turkey: It’s Boy Meets Gobbler in New Children’s Book

Bigfork, MT, June 10, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Children of all ages are gobbling up The Turkey's Treat, the latest release from Outskirts Press author Marie Metroke that mixes goofy holiday fun with important lessons about the importance of family.

Now available through the OP Store (www.outskirtspress.com/store.php), The Turkey's Treat introduces young Jeff Watson, who has his sight set on the perfect Christmas turkey. But that turns out to be a whole lot more difficult when he has to catch it himself!

The story starts as the Watson family prepares for the big day. There’s so much to do – from picking out a tree to gathering all the fixings for a Christmas feast – and they’re way behind. In fact, there’s so much going on this year that Jeff learns a turkey might not be on the table. But as the family shops for last-minute items, Jeff discovers a real-life gobbler in a supermarket – and then a hilarious accident puts him and the turkey on very familiar terms.

The uproarious hijinks that follow land Jeff in the emergency room with a turkey bite, but wind up bringing the family closer together. And when he gets a hold of his feathered friend, Jeff might find the plucky gobbler is just too adorable to put on a plate. Through it all, Jeff discovers the true meaning of Christmas is about more than just the fixings.

Renowned children’s book illustrator Victor Guiza brings Metroke’s characters to life with large, vibrant, full-color illustrations that kids will want to devour again and again. The magic and meaning of the season come through as kids learn Christmas isn’t about what’s under the tree or in the ’fridge, but rather spending time with those closest.

The Turkey's Treat is now available through Ingram, Baker & Taylor, Amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, and the online bookstore of Outskirts Press, at outskirtspress.com/store.php.
