Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa la la la la la la la la. How wonderful the old carol sounds. A vision of warm family gatherings peacefully celebrating the holiday season comes to mind. But wait, this doesn’t sound like a peaceful family get-together. What is happening here? Deck the walls with mashed potatoes! Fa la la la la la la la la. Make a snowman with tomatoes. Fa la la la la la la la la. Author Erin Dealey has taken the old holiday classic and turned it on its head. In her riotous, raucous rendition of a family meal gone hilariously awry, you’ll find food hockey, vegetable sculptures, crashing dishes, and grown-ups wondering what has gone wrong. From “Feed the dog our peas and carrots” to “Food tastes better when you wear it,” readers young and old will never forget this new take on an old holiday carol!

This book is a rewrite of the traditional song, "Deck the Halls." In this story the children get up to all sorts of mischief such as throwing mashed potatoes at the walls, playing with their food, and sneaking desserts. In the end they are "Thankful we are all together."

The illustrations in this book are cute and colorful.

I have a serious problem with children throwing food at walls and under the table, playing with their food at the table, sneaking cookies while Grandma's back is turned, and mocking the adults. The adults happily clean up the mess while the children get off scot free and go out to play. This book had potential to be a fun and silly book, but sets a bad example for children.
