Description: 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.
My review: Grandma and Grandpa welcome the family to
their home on Thanksgiving Day. The house quickly fills with family,
extended family, friends, and pets. The busy illustrations are the real
star of this book, rendered in pen and ink with watercolor. They
depict a riot of activity and a large cast of characters. Children will
love following all the visual happenings in the images.
