Synopsis:

We the people of the United States...

Almost Lost Thanksgiving

Yes. That's right!

Way back when "skirts were long and hats were tall" Americans were forgetting Thanksgiving, and nobody seemed to care!

Thankfully, Sarah Hale appeared. More steadfast than Plymouth Rock, this lady editor knew the holiday needed saving. But would her recipe for rescue ever convince Congress and the presidents?

Join acclaimed author Laurie Halse Anderson on a journey of a woman and a pen that spanned four decades, the Civil War, and five presidents, all so you could have your turkey and eat it too!

Synopsis:

A National Book Award finalist teams up with a celebrated illustrator to tell the story of Sarah Hale, who in the 1800s began a letter-writing campaign to designate a day to celebrate the Pilgrims' arrival in America. Full color.

About the Author

andlt;bandgt;Matt Faulknerandlt;/bandgt; is a talented and clever picture-book maker whose dazzling ink and watercolor illustrations have graced dozens of well-loved picture books. On his inspiration for andlt;Iandgt;A Taste of Colored Water,andlt;/iandgt; he says, "When I was a boy it would've surprised me to learn that the word COLORED hung over a water fountain didn't mean that this was a magical place where fruit-flavored water flowed on demand." This story has grown out of his lifelong exploration of race and societal intolerance and the questions these institutions raise. His more recent work features several titles that focus on United States history, including andlt;Iandgt;Thank You, Sarahandlt;/iandgt; by Laurie Halse Anderson and andlt;Iandgt;You're on Your Way, Teddy Rooseveltandlt;/iandgt; by Judith St. George. He lives in Oakland, California, with his son.
