McGuirk sticks to a simple, celebratory narrative, and her gouache cartoons and hand-lettered text give the book a homey feel that’s just right for the holiday.
This brief introduction to Thanksgiving stars a winsome white terrier named Tucker. … The illustrations, rich with vibrant fall colors, gently falling leaves, and cheerful pups and people, help to set a warm atmosphere of familiarity and fun. A meandering tale about a special day that Tucker fans will gobble right up.
