About The Book

It's a beautiful fall day -- perfect for dinner with friends. But will it ever be time to eat?
It's autumn!
The air is cool and crisp, and the leaves have changed to bright golds and reds.
Mistress Pig wants to celebrate her favorite season by cooking a big feast for her friends.
Mister Frog, Missy Cat, and Master Dog can't wait to taste all the delicious food. But why is it taking so long for Mistress Pig to come out of the kitchen?
You'll never believe what happened to dinner!
Join Tomie dePaola's beloved characters as they realize that every meal tastes better when served with a healthy dollop of friendship.
