Toulouse on the Loose! is the first book in a series about a French turkey who travels to Washington, DC, at Thanksgiving time. This naive artist does not quite get the picture, however, and is about to discover why everyone has turkey on their minds. But through the grace of a pigeon who tells all, this very cultured bird does not end up on the chopping block. Instead he is pardoned at the White House Rose Garden and learns that assumptions can be forgiven and that the truth sets you free. Free to do what? Why, free to paint all the landmarks of the states and educate children about their beloved country through the eyes of a foreigner!
