The Rattlebang Picnic


The Rattlebang Picnic by Margaret Mahy

Book review by Elizabeth H. Age 10 

In The Rattlebang Picnic by Margaret Mahy, Jack McTavish and Marion McGillicuddy get married and decide to buy an old rattlebang and have a bunch of children instead of a new and expensive car and no children. The McTavishes are a happy family and they have many great adventures with Granny McTavish. In the end, the McTavishes learn that children are more of a blessing than they could ever imagine!  Elizabeth

This is definitely my all time favorite book!

Mahy, Margaret, and Steven Kellogg. The Rattlebang Picnic. Puffin Books, 1998.
