(From the publisher):
The old lady who comes for dinner has brought a mouthwatering pie and a monstrous appetite! The ravenous relative doesn't even make it to the table before she has devoured her own offering.
Then down goes a jug of cider to moisten the pie (which was really too dry), then an entire squash, followed by a bowl of salad—and the whole darn turkey! The future looks murky after that turkey, but the old lady eats on and on in this outrageous fantasy of feasting-gone-wild.
To the horror of her flabbergasted hosts and the delight of their children—and readers—the ever-expanding elder makes an unexpected but delightful contribution to the holiday festivities after all.
