About the Author

Allen Morgan first became interested in children's books while teaching kindergarten in Toronto schools. He is the author of the popular "Matthew" stories and "Nicole's Boat" (2000). Allen lives in Toronto. Michael Martchenko has illustrated over 30 books for children, including many of the popular Robert Munsch stories, and has exhibited his work throughout North America. He has won numerous awards for design and illustration. He lives with his wife in Toronto.


K-Gr 1 Matthew was having a silly day. Even his mother called him a turkey and said, ``You're much too silly today.'' He digs a hole in his mother's garden to trap the midnight turkeys. That night when the turkeys follow Matthew's arrows to the hole, they do indeed jump in, now willingly trapped with Matthew's comic books and toys. After eating pizza with the turkeys, Matthew invites them to his house and eats them for breakfast. Silly cartoon illustrations accompany the plodding narrative. There's nothing here to make children care about Matthew's adventure. Much better fantasy adventures for the picture book crowd are Dick Gackenbach's Mag the Magnificent (1985) and Harry and the Terrible Whatzit (1978, both Clarion). Stick to these and to others in which the imagination is challenged. Sandra L. Miller, Morgantown Pub . Lib . , W.Va.
