Bob and Tom by Denys Cazet - NO

Cazet, Denys Bob and Tom.  PICTURE BOOK.  Atheneum (Simon), 2017.  $18. 

Bob and Tom are two not very bright turkeys who spend their days puttering around the farm.  How dimwitted are they?  During they day they “lose” their names and think that swimsuits are what help you swim. 

I’m having a hard time understanding the humor in these short vignettes that make up a look at the turkeys’ day.  They read like very elementary Amelia Bedelia books without the actual laughs.
