From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 3-This charming title, originally published in 1982 (HarperCollins), has been newly illustrated with vibrant, humorous artwork, with wolves instead of people as characters. The trouble begins when the turkey slips from Mrs. Tappleton's grasp and slides out the door, across the lawn, and into the frozen pond. Nonstop hilarity continues and more challenges develop with the pies, mashed potatoes, and even the salad. This family races through the day, experiencing one calamitous food catastrophe after another. However, the guests realize that Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate one another, not the traditional feast. This never-a-dull-moment look at Thanksgiving is a feast for the eyes; the slapstick events that develop are what help to strengthen the family ties. A comical, quirky view of tradition and togetherness, this title will be a surefire hit with the storytime crowd.

From the Back Cover
Thanksgiving is always a special day at the Tappletons'.
Mrs. Tappleton gets up early to prepare the turkey. Mr. Tappleton sets off to buy the pies. Kenny makes the salad, and Jenny mashes the potatoes. Then all of the relatives arrive for an enormous Thanksgiving dinner.
But this year nothing seems to go right. First, the turkey slides down the icy hill into the pond—plop! splash! Then the bakery sells out of pies. It looks like it's going to be a pretty bleak holiday . . . until Grandmother reminds everyone that there's more to Thanksgiving than a turkey and trimmings.
Readers will delight in this fresh reissue of the beloved classic tale Thanksgiving at the Tappletons', featuring original art by Maryann Cocca-Leffler.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
