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.’
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.
