Turkey Hollow is a picturesque town where hundreds of years ago, unbeknownst to the citizens, a meteorite landed near a small brook on the outskirts of town. One Thanksgiving, while young Timmy Henderson practices his guitar, he's accompanied by strange, unearthly, musical sounds. That meteorite wasn't a rock at all but an egg holding seven furry, goofy monsters, each with a unique musical sound! After the initial shock, Timmy befriends the lovable creatures, who follow him all around Turkey Hollow. Not everyone takes a liking to the visitors, though, and it's up to Timmy to protect his new friends and save Thanksgiving!

    The opening sequence isn't really needed, and while the bonus pages of behind-the-scenes photos, sketches and script pages are a treat for those that like the process of creating comics, most of it could be missing and I'd never miss it. Overall, this book is a recommendation for me, even with the hardcover price point, but the story itself is so good that you almost want it in a format that's more durable so you can share it with your kids.

    For a story that is based around "musical monsters," Langridge and company impressively manage to bring the tale to life without musical accompaniment. While the exact tune of the songs transcribed in this book may not be known to the average reader, there is no mistaking the celebration of life those songs present. More appropriate for all ages readers than Archaia's other Jim Henson reclamation project, "A Tale of Sand," "The Musical Monsters of Turkey Hollow" is a fine addition to any library, a welcome adventure into imagination and a ready candidate for a holiday special as it was intended to be.
