KIRKUS REVIEW

Ethan and his friends have grown up watching Ethan’s family’s Turkey Bowl, just waiting till they’re old enough to join in. But snow is falling on Thanksgiving Day, and it looks like Ethan’s relatives won’t make it after all. But, “We can have our own Turkey Bowl,” declares Ethan, and the game begins. Payne clothes his lumpy-nosed children in antique football gear and high-tops, milking both past and present Bowls for all the slapstick available. The family’s devotion to football and to one another comes through loud and clear in this celebration of that other Thanksgiving tradition. (Picture book. 5-8)
