Publisher's Description

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.

Author Bio

Lydia Maria Child (1802--1880) was an activist and writer of novels, pamphlets, and works for children. She often used her writing to advocate for slaves, women, and Native Americans. Lydia Maria Child was born in Medford, Massachusetts, where her grandfather's house, which she celebrates in her poem, still stands.

Matt Tavares is the illustrator of many books for children, including 'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS and Kristin Kladstrup's THE GINGERBREAD PIRATES. He is also the author-illustrator of several books about baseball: ZACHARY'S BALL, OLIVER'S GAME, MUDBALL, and HENRY AARON'S DREAM. Matt Tavares lives in Ogunquit, Maine.

Editorial Reviews

An old-timey New England landscape of wintry merrymaking. A lovely way to start the season.

Tavares brings life to this countryside jaunt with light doses of humor and action.
