Thanksgiving is ALWAYS a very big day at the Tappletons’, but this Thanksgiving turns into a fiasco! First, the turkey slips away, then the bakery is sold out, and the calamities continue until Uncle Fritz and Grandfather Tappleton almost swear off eating Thanksgiving Dinner at all! It’s not until Grandmother Tappleton gently reminds everyone that, “there is more to Thanksgiving than a turkey and trimmings,” that the Tappletons begin to improvise . . . and end up enjoying a most unusual holiday “feast.” There is more to Thanksgiving than eating and this heart-warming tale is a great message for all families as we gather together to celebrate a time for giving thanks.
