One of my favorite books as a kid was P.D. Eastman’s Go Dog. Go! I still think it’s one of the best—a pared-down, simple idea with bold, direct illustrations to match.  The story: dogs of a dizzying variety all travel by whatever means they have to get themselves to a big dog party.  That’s it.

Turkey Day has virtually the same idea—this time, of course, with turkeys!  So, naturally, I had to do a little homage, a little tip of the hat to P.D. Eastman.  So here are some sketches for the cover art for Turkey Day.
