Can Charlie Bumpers be a polite Thanksgiving host to the most annoying cousin in the universe? From the award-winning middle grade series by author Bill Harley.

It's Thanksgiving in the Bumpers' household, and Charlie has to be the perfect host to his annoying little cousin, Chip. Chip makes everything hard for Charlie―gets him in trouble, ruins his things, and generally makes a nuisance of himself. On top of that, for homework, his fourth-grade teacher Mrs. Burke has assigned him the task of writing what a family means to him. Will Charlie be able to see past his "turkey" of a cousin to understand the real meaning of family? Black and white illustrations throughout. Available in eBook.

Charlie Bumpers is a heartwarming and hilarious middle grade series starring a relatable fourth grader dealing with everyday issues surrounding family, friends, and school. From Grammy Award-winning author Bill Harley.
