Summary
Pack up the pooches and load the van.

We need to leave by eight!

There's so much to bring.

Do we have everything?

Come on, we can't be late!



The classic song gets a fresh new twist! The fun begins when Grandma and Grandpa send invitations to their far-flung, modern, and multiracial family: Come to our house for the holidays--and bring your favorite pie! Off everyone goes, driving down snowy roads, riding the train, boarding a plane . . . even sailing along in a hot-air balloon. As each family faces an obstacle that delays their trip, they learn that sometimes the most old-fashioned form of transportation works best . . . NEIGH!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ashman and Smith collaborate in the creation of a unique family-gathering holiday adventure. Four families nuclear, biracial, adoptive, and gay head to the grandparents' house for Thanksgiving. Coming from different parts of the U.S., the families make their ways to grandma's house via car, train, plane, and boat. But problems occur en route the car runs out of gas, the rental lot at the train station is empty, a tire goes flat on the airport shuttle, and so on. Luckily, in every transportation crisis, a one-horse open sleigh always manages to come to the rescue. Based on the familiar nineteenth-century Thanksgiving Day song, Ashman's galloping lyrics neatly complement Smith's lively traveling scenes, which are packed full of fun family antics. The warm full-color palette and cheery cartoonish faces add to the genial atmosphere, and humorous details peppering the backgrounds will be fun for little kids to hunt for. With singsongy lines and a repeated refrain, this celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday and families of all stripes will be a great fit for group storytime.--Lock, Anita Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: ""Off to the airport before the dawn./ It's park, then dash, then... wait." Ashman offers a boisterous update of this seasonal song, highlighting the contemporary tradition of harried holiday travel. The endpapers lead in nicely, showing a wall of photographs of the families about to descend on Grandma and Grandpa's house for an unnamed winter holiday. Each family (some are mixed race, one includes two fathers) has its own journey to make by land, sea, or air (a hot-air balloon even comes into play), and each hits a snag, requiring rescue by a horse-drawn sleigh. Smith's lively digital illustrations include plenty of visual jokes to pore over, and the diverse cast, non-specificity of the holiday being celebrated, and all-too-familiar travel woes make for a thoroughly relatable and enjoyable story.
