KIRKUS REVIEW

In a picture-book edition of a lengthy story of interest for its typical Alcott tone and its 1880's nostalgia for the simpler 1820's, the numerous Baxter children prepare Thanksgiving dinner in their parents' absence--with some amusing mishaps that reveal Alcott's prejudices. McCurdy's tinted wood engravings have the stiff charm of handmade 19th-century toys.
