By Emma Gutierrez / June 12, 2024

We’ve got a great story for June! Our featured author is James, who wrote “Train Driver Turkey Drawn to Trouble.” Dive into this tale about a train driver and his friend with a twist you won’t see coming! Continue reading to find out what happens!

One day, there is a Train Driver Turkey, who is running away from a pencil. So Train Driver Turkey decides to move to Hawaii to escape the pencil. 

He begins his journey and is sailing but doesn’t know that Famey is on board. Famey is cooking raw eggs. He lifts the pan with the eggs towards the ceiling. Sadly, the eggs are stuck there forever. Oops! 

That’s when Train Driver Turkey smells something horrible (it’s the eggs). Train Drive Turkey realizes Famey is on board just as they reach Hawaii.

And you will not believe what happens next! THE PENCIL APPEARS! Train Driver Turkey can’t believe it. He doesn’t want Famey to get erased by the pencil. 


“Famey! Get away from that pencil!!!” He yells.

In an interesting turn of events, Famey fights Train Driver Turkey to protect the pencil. Train Driver Turkey is confused, but he tries his best to keep Famey away from the pencil. He tries to stop Famey again… but Famey and the pencil are in love! They get married. 

Train Driver Turkey decides to head back to Canada and leaves Famey and the pencil as they kiss a million times. The end!
