Synopsis

Cliff Abernathy is 11 years old, but he's not an ordinary elementary school kid. As the oldest in a family of six children, he has a lot of responsibilities-and patience. When Cliff looks back over the last year, he has plenty of stories to tell about his parents, his four brothers, and his sister, especially since the Abernathys like to do everything together. Through holidays and weekdays, ups and downs, Fig Pudding brings you into the busy world of a big, close family. As you follow Cliff from one Christmas to the next, you'll learn what a yadda-yadda is, how the headless chicks got to be that way, how the family weathers a tragedy, and other wonderful bits of family lore. Ralph Fletcher is the oldest in a family of nine children, so he has vivid firsthand experience with life in a large household. Through Jeff Woodman's spirited narration, Fig Pudding dishes up generous helpings of the energy and good humor that fill the Abernathys' days.
