I read the 1974 version with neat nostalgic sketches by Holly Johnson. Full of old-timey charm, it's the story oft a large family of kids left alone on a stormy Thanksgiving when their parents go to attend to a sick relative. They attempt to recreate the perfect Thanksgiving meal. It would be a fun read-aloud for elementary school kids studying Colonial America or Thanksgiving. Includes recipes, and I'll be trying Louisa May Alcott;s Apple Slump.
