The relatives were our very first guests, and they licked every plate clean. I thought it was a FABULOUS party! Don't you just love my hat? Cook was not fond of the puppies on the table or the flying kittens. Codger had way too much catnip, as usual.
When ear-scratcher (the duke) and Calls-Me-Sweetie-Pie (the Duchess) do not return in time to host their family's famous series of tea parties, Lady Ginny (the poodle) and Codger (the cat) must step in. Codger slows them down a bit, but with the help of Cook and two tiny and unusual characters, they entertain eleven gatherings of guests from mountain lions to butterflies, with just the right treats for each, elegantly prepared, and (almost) flawlessly presented. Lady Ginny's Tea Parties is Lady Ginny’s scrapbook, documenting her heroic attempts: the menus, the mishaps and the haute couture.
