9780062363985: Thanksgiving at the Tappletons'

The beloved Thanksgiving story by Eileen Spinelli, Thanksgiving at the Tappletons', is back with original artwork by Maryann Cocca-Leffler, which fans have grown to love.

Thanksgiving is always a big day at the Tappletons'. But this Thanksgiving each task is interrupted by calamity and hilarity: first the turkey slips away . . . then the bakery is sold out . . . 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.

From the Back Cover:

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.

About the Author:

Eileen Spinelli is the author of many picture books and poetry collections, including A Big Boy Now, Hug a Bug, and the bestselling When Mama Comes Home Tonight, among others. When she writes a story, she has an instant audience: her twenty-five grandchildren and husband, Jerry (also a writer). Aside from story making, Eileen teaches creative writing and poetry. The Spinellis live in Media, Pennsylvania.



Maryann Cocca-Leffler is thrilled that the Tappletons are back! She illustrated the very first version of Thanksgiving at the Tappletons' in 1982 as a new illustrator fresh out of art school, and then reillustrated it in 1992. Since then, Maryann has written and illustrated over fifty children's books, including Rain Brings Frogs, A Vacation for Pooch, and Janine. Maryann lives and works in New Hampshire.
