This November book is one of 12 books in the "Bedside Story Collection Series" spanning across the 12 months of the year. Each of the 12 bedside stories is reprinted in color from the author's black and white third edition paperback book "Twelve Upon A Time" [the kindle version of this 3rd edition book is in color]. Each monthly story is unique and illustrated by the original drawings of children whose interpretation of the words can only be seen through their eyes. Over 100 drawings span the Collection Series. These stories are written to further the imagination of children and to strengthen the parent and child bond through the sharing of heartwarming, silly, absurd and believably impossible tales. Stories include: February: Surprised by a Secret Admirer explores the growing friendship between two children and their special celebration of Valentine’s Day. April: The Great Festival of Rabbunia follows the adventures of children to the mythical land of Rabbunia. October: Trick or Treat with Bitty the Bat looks at the tradition of Halloween through the eyes of creature friends. November: 'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving... is a Thanksgiving story that unfolds in rhyme. So, sit back and relax with your children and cuddle up in that special place in your home as you enjoy the adventures that unfold one month at a time for a whole year in Twelve Upon A Time...
The interest, drive and motivation to become a writer often have their roots early in life even though one may not realize at the time. I was an 8-year-old third grader when I had some conscious awareness that writing is a good thing. It was then that several friends and I started a neighborhood newsletter.
With typewriter in hand, the newsletter was born and essentially shared much about nothing that went on in the neighborhood. However, our neighbors were kind enough to give us 25 cents for each newsletter… and most paying customers could actually read the carbon blur caused by a dozen carbon sheets.
As the years passed, I took several courses in writing and things didn’t seem so blurry … to date, I have published the following books (all books and details at www.galluzzibooks.com):
“Mirror, Mirror at 1600 D.C.”
“Side Stepping the Rules: Broken or Not”
“Twelve Upon A Time...”
“Twelve Upon A Time... Bedside Story Collection Series" - 12 books for each month of the year in color
As with all my books, I hope the reader enjoys the read as much as I enjoyed the write... Ed

Twelve Upon A Time... November: 'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving, Bedside Story Collection Series
It was a cold and wintry night as fall days were long out of sight. Adam, Sarah, Sharon and Hannah lay huddled on the family room rug, wrapped in their blankets all cozy and snug. And even Tigger was purring beside them wondering what those turkeys were doing above him.
