November 4, 2013 —
Food. Family. Football. Three things to be thankful for and that help make Thanksgiving Day special. This Thanksgiving season, there’s a children’s eBook that celebrates all three and is “stuffed” with fun for your family’s iPad®, Kindle®, NOOK® or other tablet or eReading device. The Turkey Bowl, the Thanksgiving Day Challenge eBook (www.touchdownturkeys.com), written by Robert Skead and published by Tale Blazer Productions, features turkeys in a football adventure.

Parents who download the $4.99 eBook from the Apple iBook Store®, Kindle Store® or NOOK Store® will support the work of Feeding America the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity, dedicated to feeding America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engaging our country in the fight to end hunger.

The Turkey Bowl tells the story of Junior the turkey, who only days before the biggest football game of his life, witnesses his dad, Flyer, get sacked, trapped and “turkeynapped” by humans. Blaming himself for his father’s predicament, Junior goes on an adventure with two of the animal world’s coolest super heroes, Super Buck and the Masked Wonder, hired to save Flyer from becoming Thanksgiving dinner and get him home in time for the big annual football game. Ultimately, Junior learns that a little confidence and trying hard can deliver big results, while Flyer discovers the true meaning of Thanksgiving. And the whole family catches on to a new football tradition.

The Turkey Bowl features illustrations by Tom Bancroft, who animated on such Disney films as Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Aladdin, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tarzan and Atlantis.  Also included is a video of the author and his “clones” discussing the value of gratitude.               

The Turkey Bowl will appeal to football fans of all ages, especially young readers, ages 8 and up.

Robert Skead is also the author of several popular children’s books, including Something to Prove: The Great Satchel Paige Versus Rookie Joe DiMaggio (Lerner Publishing, April 2013); Mighty Mike Bounces Back (Magination Press, September 2011), and Elves Can’t Dunk (eBook written with former NBA star A.C. Green). When he is not crafting stories, the 49-year-old author can often be found speaking with children and adults about creative writing at schools.
