This Update Friday, I wanted to look back on a book that has, oddly enough, risen to the top of my son's favorite pile again and again and again. Trust me, if I wasn't planning on hording all of his books in my attic when he no longer cares, THIS is the book that he'd be logging onto What's That Book years from now asking... "Um, it has a black and white and pink cover and I think it was about France and there was a cat and a string bag and lots of food, can anyone help me out?"
For nearly three years my son has loved this book and over dozens and dozens and dozens of readings, he still gets tickled. Maybe it's the fact that it documents one mistake after another. Maybe it's because they visit the Bird Market in Paris (as in the fab Rosalie)... maybe it's the fact that there's so much love and caring in this title and that everyone ends up fat and happy in the end. Who knows. What ever the reason, I'm reintroducing you to one that is definitely in my son's top five all-time favorites, Seven Uncles Come to Dinner. Here it is in all its glory, updated from my original post in the spring of 2008 with all new scans!
