Thanksgiving is always a big day at the Tappletons'. Mrs. Tappleton gets up very early to prepare the turkey. Mr. Tappleton sets off to buy pies. Kenny makes the salad while Jenny mashes the potatoes.
But this Thanksgiving each task is interrupted by calamity and hilarity: first the turkey slips away . . . then the bakery sells out of pies . . . and so on, until Uncle Fritz and Grandfather Tappleton despair of ever eating dinner at all!
It's not until Grandmother Tappleton reminds everyone, "There is more to Thanksgiving than a turkey and trimmings," that the Tappletons begin to improvise . . . and end up enjoying a most unusual holiday "feast."
Delicious drawings add to the merriment of this warm, contemporary tale, whose mirth and message youngsters will savor.About the Author:
Eileen Spinelli is the author of many picture books and poetry collections, including A Big Boy Now, Hug a Bug, and the bestselling When Mama Comes Home Tonight, among others. When she writes a story, she has an instant audience: her twenty-five grandchildren and husband, Jerry (also a writer). Aside from story making, Eileen teaches creative writing and poetry. The Spinellis live in Media, Pennsylvania.
Megan Lloyd has illustrated more than forty books for children, including The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams, Thanksgiving at the Tappletons' by Eileen Spinelli, and The Mixed-Up Rooster by Pamela Duncan Edwards. She lives with her husband on a farm in Pennsylvania, where she raises sheep, chickens, and cows. Some of the rabbits from her vegetable garden have even been kind enough to allow Ms. Lloyd to sketch them as models for this book.
