Book Review: 'The Great Thanksgiving Escape' by Mark Fearing

✰✰✰✰ It's that time of year when all the relatives gather at Grandma's for Thanksgiving dinner. Gavin is less than thrilled to find himself stuck in the room for babies and toddlers, so when his cousin Rhonda suggests they make their own fun, Gavin is in. Unfortunately, trying to sneak out to the backyard is not as easy as the duo thinks. There's many obstacles like guard dogs, aunts, and teenage zombies. And just when they've almost reached their goal, the weather turns against them. Will they be able to make their great escape or will they be returned to the baby room? Check out this holiday treat to find out.

The Bottom Line: This humorous picture book is packed with bold colors. Illustrated from a child's perspective, it's a super fun read. Suggested holiday reading for kids ages PreK - Grade 1.

Details: The Great Thanksgiving Escape written & illustrated by Mark Fearing. Picture book published by Candlewick Press in 2014. 32 p. ISBN: 978-0-7636-6306-3
