Before starting, I did what every wise baker should do and actually took the time to read over the recipe. And what I found made me very nervous.
I’ve decided children’s book authors have had way too much fun with “let’s save the turkey!” schtick in Thanksgiving books. Since animals are anthropomorphized in so many kid books, I think it’s an obvious connection. Why would we eat our friends? Why are adults so excited about eating a potential bestie? These are deep questions worth exploring.
