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.
