Annie wants to have a big Thanksgiving dinner. She doesn't know who to invite besides Henry, Mudge, Henry's mother and father, and her father. There is one chair left and Henry says maybe someone might come. A surprise guest shows up. It is Aunt Sally. At the end of the story, Annie and Snowball and the thankful friends have the best Thanksgiving ever.
Our favorite part of the story is when Annie and Henry set the table because it is beautiful. Our favorite character is Snowball because she is cute and cuddly. This story relates to our lives because we know people who have bunnies. The pictures help tell what is going on.
We think others should read this story because it teaches you to help others.
