An ebullient young host named Percy assures readers that he's a “Thanksgiving Pro,” and that “when it comes to turkey day,/ there's nothing I don't know.” His “simple rules” include putting on whatever your mom wants you to wear (Rule #1: “Smile and say Pumpkin Pie”) and giving brief, polite greetings (“Rule #3: Short = Sweet”). When the buffet is unveiled, the message is loud and clear: “I officially command you to eat everything you see!” is Percy's decree. Percy's enthusiasm effectively captures the spirit of affable overindulgence. Ages 5–9. (Sept.)
