Publisher 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!

One of our favorite holiday books! Aunts and uncles and cousins are all coming to Grandma and Grandpa's house for Thanksgiving, and they're all coming by different modes of transportation and meeting various silly obstacles along the way. The illustrations are cute and have fun details to pay attention to, which is a lot of fun for my three-year-old. My favorite part is that every page's rhyming text is written to that it can be sung to the tune of the classic song!
