The Thanksgiving visitor
Capote, Truman
Children's Fiction CAPOTE

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

With Peck's wistful, muted paintings, Capote's brilliantly polished reminiscence makes a moving holiday read-aloud for older children. Buddy, the narrator, tells of the Thanksgiving that his eccentric spinster cousin invited Odd Henderson, the school bully, for dinner‘knowing full well how Odd had tormented Buddy. Without a drop of schmaltz, Capote explores issues of graciousness, compassion and forgiveness. Replacing the watercolor and ink medium she used for her illustrations of Capote's A Christmas Memory (1989) with more substantial oils, Peck retains the previous work's fluidity and emotional appeal. A natural holiday centerpiece. All ages. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
