Description

Clifford Allyn Abernathy III (just Cliff, for short) is the oldest of six kids in a family that does everything--fighting, laughing, playing, eating, telling stories, and celebrating the holidays--in a big, often outlandish, and sometimes poignant way.

Taking the family from Christmas to Christmas, the chapters of Fig Pudding, narrated by eleven-year-old Cliff, are complete short stories in themselves--full of quick-paced, hilarious action and the warmth and love of a close-knit family. This new edition includes an original story.

Reviews

"This warm story . . . neatly blends the humor and frustrations of growing up in a large family."--Publishers Weekly

"Fletcher captures perfectly the humor, irritations, and sadness of life in a large, close-knit family and makes Cliff a sympathetic and thoughtful narrator, occasionally bewildered by his siblings' antics but always a completely believable older brother."--Booklist

"In a fresh, exuberant voice, eleven-year-old Cliff Abernathy III narrates a rollercoaster year in his family's life, beginning with Christmas and Grandma's visit. Chapters are colorful vignettes of celebrations, crises, and day-to-day events."--School Library Journal
