From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2—In this story told in rhyme, Percy Isaac Gifford, clad in his P.I.G. sweater, presents readers with a workshop on how to get the most out of Thanksgiving, complete with 10 simple rules. ("Rule 1: Smile and say pumpkin pie.") He offers advice on everything from getting through preparations and greetings to how to load up the perfect plate. Exaggerated cartoon art gets increasingly busy as it builds toward the climactic spread featuring the entire Thanksgiving buffet and then slowly tapers back down again as the post-feast stupor hits many of the guests. Sometimes the inconsistent rhythm of the text makes reading aloud awkward. A silly ode to the holiday for larger collections.—Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MA END
