Illustrated in full color. Another masterpiece by the great American writer
Truman Capote is brought to an audience of all ages. Buddy and his closest
friend, his eccentric, elderly cousin, Miss Sook - the memorable characters
from Capote's A Christmas Memory --love preparing their old country house
for Thanksgiving. But there's trouble in the air. Odd Henderson, a scrawny,
freckled, red-headed bully makes Buddy the target of his relentless torment.
But Miss Sook only counsels patience and understanding, He can't help acting
ugly; he doesn't know any different, she says. Filled with emotions that are
universal to both young readers and adults, this poignant story brings to life
what we all should cherish and be thankful for--the gifts of friendship and
love. Enchanting illustrations by Beth Peck make The Thanksgiving
Visitor a perfect companion for the holiday bookshelf.
