"Thanksgiving Rules" is a rhyming guide by Laurie Friedman specifically designed to help a kid endure the rituals of a feast like Thanksgiving. Decorated with wacky, whimsical, cartoon-bright illustrations by Teresa Murfin, "Thanksgiving Rules" is at heart a decree issued by Percy Isaac, veteran of Thanksgiving feasts. First, expect to dress up however your mother wants you, clean, get involved (in preparation), greet (Percy tells how to keep it short and sweet), and finally the main event, eat the Thanksgiving Buffet! Every possible side dish and featured course is presented and described, and whatever is put on your plate, Percy's rules state "Eat Every Single Bit!" Then, go back for seconds and have dessert! finally, to show appreciation, Percy likes to give everyone around him the Percy Isaac Special, which is a Thanksgiving Hug. Although popularly received, Percy has modified this approach to include the Overeaters' Special, "a simple light peck on the cheek." Although Percy's Thanksgiving Rules may seem a little light on giving thanks, the humor and jolly intent carry him through in impish style. "Thanksgiving Rules" is written to appeal to children ages 5-9.
