Turkeys Turning the Tables is a delightful story told to a little girl by her papa. It is about turkeys getting back at humans for eating them at Thanksgiving. They tie up a little girl and threaten to eat her unless she promises that humans will never eat turkey again. She promises and is released, but the adults surrounding her are not happy with her promise.
