Trivia: Magic Tree House Thanksgiving on Thursday

Thanksgiving_on_thursday Yes, it’s true that Thanksgiving is this Thursday — but Thanksgiving on Thursday is ALSO the title of one of the Magic Tree House books by Mary Pope Osborne! (And yes, I HAVE been waiting all year to say that. And no, I DON’T have a life, thanks for pointing that out . . . )

If you’re not familiar with the Magic Tree House series, then before I get to the trivia question, I should tell you a little bit about the books: They’re about a tree house. It’s magic. Got it?

Just kidding! Here are the details: Annie and Jack are a brother and sister who discover that the books in their tree house transport them through time and space. They visit lots of different historical destinations, from Ancient Eygpt to the Ice Age to the Civil War. And — surprise, surprise — in Thanksgiving on Thursday, they travel to Plymouth, Massachusetts during the time of the pilgrims.

So, here’s my question for those of you who are familiar with the book: Jack and Annie try to help out with the turkey for the first Thanksgiving, but something goes wrong. What happens?

Leave a comment with your guess, and then check the answer. Have a very happy Thanksgiving! Or as your dinner would say, “Gobble gobble!”
