The Great Thanksgiving Escape

By Mark Fearing
Illustrated by Mark Fearing

“Kids will identify, and parents will reminisce. . . . A holiday offering that definitely makes a fun all its own.” — Kirkus Reviews

It’s another Thanksgiving at Grandma’s. Gavin expects a long, boring day full of pesky toddlers, but his cousin Rhonda has a different idea: make a break for it to the swing set in the backyard! Gavin isn’t so sure, especially when they encounter vicious guard dogs (in homemade sweaters), overly affectionate aunts, and worst of all, the great wall of butts. Can they avoid all the obstacles and find some fun before turkey time?

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