Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving: Summary and Review of the Book If you are looking for a humorous and engaging book to read to your students prior to Thanksgiving, Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving will captivate your students with its lively text and bright illustrations.
This cute rhythmic picture book was written and illustrated by Dav Pilkey, who is best known for his series of Captain Underpants books. Your elementary school students will giggle as they listen to you read this funny Thanksgiving story that is a parody of the classic Christmas tale Twas the Night Before Christmas.
Dav Pilkey twists his story into a delightful tale of eight boys and girls that take a field trip to a turkey farm where they meet Farmer Mack Nugget and his eight turkeys on the day before Thanksgiving.
In a clever and humorous ending, the children stuff their feathered friends under their shirts and head for home filled with "hot turkey stuffing".
