Arthur puts pressure on everyone to get someone to play the part. He tries his parents, his friends, even his sister D.W. Every one has excuses as to why they can't do it.
Arthur begins to think about Turkeys while doing math problems, practicing the piano, and even doing the dishes. Finally he decides to take the part himself.
Despite the ensuing chaos, when the big day comes the performances go well. The moment comes for the Turkey to say his lines. Arthur's comes on stage and goes red with the laughter of the audience; but he is not on stage alone for very long. Soon all of his friends and family are there too-- all dressed like turkeys. Turns out they all 'stepped up' to support Arthur.
Four Stars. [B-]. Cute Arthur story that doesn't really go into the Thanksgiving story/Pilgrim story - just in case that is what you are looking for. It does however demonstrate that family and friends are something to be thankful for.
