Turkey Bowl (Phil Bildner)

Recommended, Not Repeatable 

It’s a cute Thanksgiving/family tradition story, where a young boy and his friends watch, year after year, as his family plays touch football (which gets clever name changes every year depending on the conditions: Mud Bowl, Ice Bowl, etc). They cheer everyone on, but really, they dream of the day when they’ll finally be big enough to play. The year finally arrives, he dresses and prepares… and then finds out that the roads have been snowed in, and it looks like he might miss his opportunity. It was a cute story, well-drawn in a way that looks almost portrait/picture like, but it’s not really something I think I’d want to read over and over again.
