Bubba and Beau Meet the Relatives

Author: Kathi Appelt

First line: "The relatives are coming!" cried Mama Pearl

Why you should read this book: When Mama Pearl and Big Bubba go on a cooking and cleaning spree in preparation for an impromptu family reunion, Little Bubba and his hound-puppy Beau head straight for the mudhole. It's an exuberant slice of the simple life, and a recipe for making big problems small. Rollicking good fun, especially for reading out loud.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You see nothing at all funny about rednecks and you're offended by a story set in "Bubbaville."
