Contrary to the usual animosity toward the turkeys that roam around South Beach, Maria Volpe is a huge fan of them, and was inspired to use them as characters in her recently-published children's book.

The 67-year-old Midland Beach resident titled her book "Boobilena's Birthday Party at Busy Beach." It follows the misadventures of a friendly little turkey, celebrating her first birthday. The book is filled with colorful illustrations and contains a moral tale for children to learn. Volpe hopes the book will "put our turkeys on the map."

Volpe has said she always enjoyed writing and is already at work at a second 'Boobilena' book. "Boobliena's Birthday Party at Busy Beach" is for available for purchase on amazon.com.
