Book Synopsis

"An exceptionally handsome treat." -Booklist

Lydia Maria Child's beloved poem turned classic song embodies the magic of bundling up and riding a horse-drawn sleigh to visit Grandmother for Thanksgiving.

The joys of Thanksgiving are indelibly captured in this glorious paring of text and art.

Set in the nineteenth century, this story features Christopher Manson's indelible wood carvings, which capture the wonders of winter--such as sledding and ice-skating--and the Thanksgiving feast.

Review Quotes

"Manson s vibrant, textured illustrations capture the verve and enthusiasm of Child s well-known holiday poem, feeling as old-fashioned as the original 1844 verse and yet timelessly festive..."-Horn Book Magazine, Cynthia K. Ritter"

"This reissue...is more than justified by Manson s gorgeous colored woodcut illustrations, which conjure everything that was solid and charming about 19th-century New England life."-New York Times Book Review"

Recalling a simpler time, this book captures the poem s sense of excitement and celebration. Readers who join the family en route to Grandfather s house will observe many details about life in the 19th century. . . . Manson s woodcuts, painted in the colors of a snowy evening, lovingly depict the wintry countryside. - School Library Journal"
