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.

Author Biography

Eileen Spinelli lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, author Jerry Spinelli. As a little girl, she knew it was autumn when the family piled into her dad’s old Chevy and drove off to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, for apples. Eileen Spinelli is the author of over thirty children’s books.
