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.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. Download and start listening now!

    " Fig Pudding is all about this one bot named Cliff who is the main charter of the story and is also the oldest of six. Then their grandma comes in and they have a ton of fun with her. In till their little brother gets very sick and has to go to the hospital. This is right before Christmas and their little brother that is in the hospital and he keeps saying he wants a "Yidda Yadda" and they really wanted to give it to him but they didn't know what it was. Till one day then found out he wanted a little ladder for his bed but they told them this on Christmas eve and so they all went home to build it. They took all night but they gave it to him on Christmas and he was super happy. Then later in the book Cliffs brother Brad dies when he is riding into a ambulance. The family spends a long time just being sad about it and even walking into the room made them cry or seeing their cloths. They don't cheer up till they got to this New Years eve party and The little brother steps into the fig pudding that the family all made together but they still serve it to the people the fig pudding. Then when they serve it everyone thinks its the best fig pudding ever and that makes the whole family super happy and made them laugh. The ended up telling the everyone that the little brother step into the fig pudding and that's the end. I really loved this book it was sad t parts but really funny at others. It was one of my favorite books ever and i think it was a easy read but it was a very good and heart touching book. I would read it again. I thought that the author did a good job telling you how it would really be living with that many people in their family and that's why i thought the book was so good. "

    " Authors should realize that it's hard to read their books when your eyes are filled with tears. Ralph Fletcher, please take note! Being from a family of 6 I could relate to this family (there were 4 boys before I came along, and six years later my sister). We never had to deal with the tragedy in this book, but we certainly had some of the laughs and craziness written about in Fig Pudding. Thank you, Ralph Fletcher for sharing this beautiful story. "
