Turkey Trouble on the National Mall has two main characters, KC and Marshal. Every year, the President spares one turkey from being eaten on Thanksgiving. KC doesn’t think that that is enough. She and her best friend Marshal try to save more turkeys; does it work? Read the book and find out! This book is definitely rated for ages seven through nine. The author, Ron Roy’s purpose for the book was positively meant for younger readers and those who are reluctant readers.
My overall opinion about Turkey Trouble on the National Mall is that it was an engaging page turner! The main characters, KC and Marshal, seemed to be real to me; I could put myself in their places. Ron Roy, the author, made me believe the characters in this book to be real, and I could easily imagine this story to be true because of the pictures. Ron Roy’s voice was adventurous. I really didn’t learn anything from the book, because it was fictional. The vocabulary is age appropriate. I would encourage slower readers to get this book and not advanced readers, as a fast reader I went through this book in one night! This book is so good I want to read it again.
