From the Publisher:
As soon as Maggie's grandma and grandpa get the turkey in the oven, bright and early on Thanksgiving morning, the guests arrive and the commotion begins: glamorous aunts, crying babies, acrobatic cousins, strange dogs, mysterious gifts, romance, friendships, "yackety-yak"ing and, of course, lots of wonderful food and fun.
You'll find a new story every time you read this joyous celebration of Thanksgiving!
A grandmother and grandfather prepare a huge Thanksgiving Day feast for their very large, and very lively, family. Color illustrations accompany the text.
"Youngsters will want to visit Goode's holiday table again and again, for some of the best Thanksgiving fare in many seasons....This tale burst with the bounteous food and festivity that define the holiday." 09/22/2003 New York Times Book Review
"Diane Goode's pen-and-ink drawings spin out like ragtime, each squiggle denoting a rustle of silk or a whoop or whisper." - Sandra Dutton 11/16/2003
