"The classic song gets a fresh new twist! The fun begins when Grandma and Grandpa send invitations to their far-flung, modern, and multiracial family: Come to our house for the holidays--and bring your favorite pie! Off everyone goes, driving down snowy roads, riding the train, boarding a plane ... even sailing along in a hot-air balloon. As each family faces an obstacle that delays their trip, they learn that sometimes the most old-fashioned form of transportation works best . . . NEIGH!"--Publisher.

Fantastic update to this classic song. Every situation has been modernized - from all the different travel methods today to the mosaic of different families. All mold together to follow the tradition to travel home for the holidays. The rhyming is superb and flows without a hitch. This is a book to add to your personal collection; it will get the song through another 150 years!
