Matt Tavares's lavish illustrations illuminate this definitive edition of a beloved seasonal classic.
The horse is ready, the air is bracing, and everyone is bundled into the sleigh. So let the wind blow and the snow start to fall! This family is off to Grandfather's house for a delicious feast. Matt Tavares, with his keen eye for detail, fresh and surprising perspectives, and all the warmth and coziness of a big holiday dinner, illuminates the original text of Lydia Maria Child's verse about Thanksgiving Day, which has marked the start of the holiday season for generations of children.
An old-timey New England landscape of wintry merrymaking. A lovely way to start the season.
—The New York Times
Tavares brings life to this countryside jaunt with light doses of humor and action.
