Not You Standard Thanksgiving Faire- a review of "Arthur's Thanksgiving" Aug 17, 2006
In this book, Arthur is chosen by Mr. Ratburn to be the director of the school's "Thanksgiving Day' play. As expected he is wined and dined for the primo parts by Francine, Buster and friends. The problems start however when it comes to filling the role of the chief bird. No one wants to wear that Turkey suit!
Arthur puts pressure on everyone to get someone to play the part. He tries his parents, his friends, even his sister D.W. Every one has excuses as to why they can't do it.
Arthur begins to think about Turkeys while doing math problems, practicing the piano, and even doing the dishes. Finally he decides to take the part himself.
Despite the ensuing chaos, when the big day comes the performances go well. The moment comes for the Turkey to say his lines. Arthur's comes on stage and goes red with the laughter of the audience; but he is not on stage alone for very long. Soon all of his friends and family are there too-- all dressed like turkeys. Turns out they all 'stepped up' to support Arthur.
Four Stars. [B-]. Cute Arthur story that doesn't really go into the Thanksgiving story/Pilgrim story - just in case that is what you are looking for. It does however demonstrate that family and friends are something to be thankful for.
Arthur's Thanksgiving Mar 1, 2005
The book was a brilliant book. I like how Arthur was the director and Francine thought that she was going to direct. Arthur had trouble finding a turkey for the school play and how he had to try to bribe people. Everyone threatened to quit the play if he couldn't find a turkey. He even bought a real turkey. Then in the end, he decided to be the turkey himself.
Ms. Carrolls' Class Book Review Nov 20, 2001
In this story Arthur couldn't find a turkey. The best part of the story was when he found a turkey. We learned that at Thanksgivintg we can have fun like Arthur. Arthur was very funny in this story. Our favorite part of the story was when Arthur was a turkey and then everybody else became a turkey. We think that everyone should read this book because it has lots of funny pictures in it.
AUTHUR'S THANKSGIVING Dec 1, 1999
I think the book "Author's Thanksgiving" is a good book,because it helps kid understand about Thanksgiving. It also tells kids that in anything you do there can be a problem, but all you have to do is think it out even if you have to hurt a friend's feelings to make something better. I really enjoyed the book and the ending was not what I was expecting ( which is a good thing)! It was a very cute thing!
