Overview
On your mark, get set, Gobblers-a-Go-Go Judy swears she'll win the race for a Thanksgiving turkey (though Stink has his doubts) in this full-color Moody adventure.
The town's annual Turkey Trot race and festival is coming up, and Judy and Stink are training to win. Judy has decided that she is going to take home the big prize: a fat, juicy turkey. They can taste it already: the moist turkey, the hot gravy, the savory stuffing, the cranberry sauce Beep Beep Beep That's the sound of Stink's Rapidfire Ultra XE611M25 stopwatch going off as Judy and Stink hop, crawl, and climb toward race day. But what if they don't win a mouthwatering bird? What then? Flying turkey gizzards Will the Moody family end up starving on T-day, like ye pilgrims of olde, or will Grandma Lou cook up a tasty Franksgiving solution?

Back to share top billing in the fourth Judy Moody and Stink story, the Moody siblings gear up for the local Gobblers-a-Go-Go festival: Judy plans to dress up as Sarah Josepha Hale, the woman who persuaded President Lincoln to make Thanksgiving a national holiday. And Judy is so certain she’ll win a footrace that boasts a turkey as top prize, she tells her grandmother not to bother buying one (which worries Stink mightily). As in the siblings’ previous outings, their spot-on dialogue and banter is a major source of this book’s fun (“I’m sorry I called you a turkey,” Stink apologizes after a long stint in time-out. “And a snood. And a wattle”), and Reynolds’s full-color illustrations easily tap into the upbeat, offbeat holiday mood. Ages 6–9. Author’s agent: Kendra Marcus, Bookstop Literary Agency. Illustrator’s agent: Holly McGhee, Pippin Properties. (Sept.)
