I (Lior) liked the book because the author described how Kenny lost the salad and Mr. Tapleton lost the pies and Mrs. Tappleton lost the turkey. It is funny how they make mistakes and try to hide them. I liked the illustrations because they are colorful and they have detailed backgrounds. I (Mai) liked the book because the illustrations were fantastic. They went well with the writing. The story reminded me of how I sometimes make mistakes when I'm not sure of what to do. I thought it was an excellent book. My favorite part was when the whole Tappleton family looked at the empty table. It was funny. They were all surprised when there was no food for the dinner. The story makes me think about celebrating the holidays with my family.
We recommend this book to all ages because it is funny how there is no food and the whole family looks at the empty table. We also like the writing because it was easy to read and the illustrations are nice because they match the writing. The book teaches you that it is more important to be together as a family than eating the food.
