The Great Thanksgiving Escape

By Mark Fearing
Illustrated by Mark Fearing

A hilarious, kid-friendly take on Thanksgiving — full of family, food, and lots of fun!

It’s another Thanksgiving at Grandma’s. Gavin expects a long day of boredom and being pestered by distantly related toddlers, but his cousin Rhonda has a different idea: make a break for it — out of the kids’ room to the swing set in the backyard! Gavin isn’t so sure, especially when they encounter vicious guard dogs (in homemade sweaters), a hallway full of overly affectionate aunts, and worse yet, the great wall of butts! Will they manage to avoid the obstacles and find some fun before turkey time? Or will they be captured before they’ve had a taste of freedom?

  • A funny take on the classic family Thanksgiving.
  • The first book written and illustrated by new talent Mark Fearing.
  • The hilarious obstacles the kids encounter in their escape will make this a favorite with kids and parents alike.
