School Library Journal - 09/01/2017 PreS—Grandmother has prepared two turkeys and invited a cast of diverse friends over for a feast. After the last one arrives, "That's when the walls bulge. There is no space! How will we all eat in this too-tiny place?" Rhymed couplets with a delightful lilt explain a common problem. As the verses count various items on each page up to the number 15, the dilemma is elucidated. Burris uses Photoshop with a soft pencil outline to capture the grandmother with her hot pink blouse, pink headband, and pink ballet flats. At the appropriate moment, the granddaughter solves the problem with "I KNOW" in a close-up perspective on a spread. VERDICT This counting story will have repeated readings during the holidays and all year round.—Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA - Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
