If you’re a turkey, it’s not really a good time around Thanksgiving.   Or Foxes.

That was on my mind when I painted my favorite turkey, the one  in ‘Henny Penny.’

Turkey Lurkey

Henny Penny was my second book.  I was in Germany at the time and turkeys aren’t the tradition there that they are in Canada.  Finding one to paint wasn’t easy.  I ended up using reference from photos, but had a great time with Turkey Lurkey never the less.

In the book it’s never clear whether he ended up dinner for Foxy Loxy or whether there was a feathered getaway.

When I visit schools I always ask for a sequel for what may have happened after they entered the Foxy Loxy’s den.  One day I want to do another book:  The True Story of Henny Penny.

If you think you know, feel free to send it, and if it’s good….we may just be working together.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving if you are reading it in Canada, or a bit later in the land south of us.
