Synopsis : Intrepid, dedicated, hardworking school handy-duck Albert has helped the children of Pleasant Valley plant a garden. Now it is time for the annual P.T.A.-sponsored Thanksgiving feast, and the garden needs to be harvested. Will anyone remember? Full color.
From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1-Albert, the taciturn, always helpful goose, and the children of Pleasant Valley plant and tend a garden to be harvested for the Thanksgiving Feast. However, Patsy Pig, President of the PTA, repeatedly sends Albert notes soliciting his help to build a table, fold paper turkeys, and other such tasks, including baking pumpkin pizza for the feast, completely interrupting the harvest. Pushed to his limits, Albert leaves Patsy a note stating, "Glad to help. But did anyone think of the vegetables?" Then, even Patsy reports to the garden to help, and it is a wonderful Thanksgiving after all. Patsy's hand-printed notes (courteous, polite, and presumptive), which comprise most of the text, are followed by watercolor and pen-and-ink pictures of Albert completing the current tasks. Luscious, full-page illustrations depict the garden and school scenes and other action. In the final joyous scene celebrating helpfulness, cooperation, and community spirit, the animals are arrayed in traditional (though perhaps not historically accurate or politically correct) Pilgrim and Indian costumes as they share the fruits of their labors. A charming story and an appealing presentation.
