Enter two families who couldn’t be more opposite. Family one seems just perfect—with a plump golden turkey, gorgeous whipped cream swirls atop their pie, and lace napkins on the table. Family two, on the other hand, seems far from it! The turkey burns, the Jell-O wiggles and jiggles right to the floor, and Dad’s shirt serves as napkin. What could these two very different families possibly have in common? Full of whimsy, good spirit, and certainly familial love, this laugh-aloud picture book is sure to add spice to any Thanksgiving feast.

“Humorous illustrations . . . It’s nice to see a book willing to tackle the cultural whammy of the ‘perfect’ holiday.”—San Francisco Chronicle
 
“This could be a great read-aloud book, with its humor and its bumptious illustrations, which use to great effect many of the techniques children learn in art class.”—The New York Times Book Review
