Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Although a paper turkey decorates Mrs. Moose's Thanksgiving table, she longs for the real thing--so her obliging husband sets out to find her one. He is joined by his soon-to-be dinner guests: Rabbit, in his quilted down vest; poky Porcupine, in his furry earmuffs; and ravenous Mr. Goat, who devours everything in sight, including Sheep's plaid hat. They find Turkey hiding in his nest, surrounded by signs that discourage visitors. Trying to console the terrified bird, Mr. Moose explains: ``We just want you for Thanksgiving dinner,'' which only confirms Turkey's fears. Young readers will be as thrilled as Turkey to hear that Mrs. Moose wants him at her table, not on it. Together, Bunting's In the Haunted House ; The Wednesday Surprise good-natured tale and de Groat's Hi Bears, Bye Bears autumn-hued, richly detailed watercolors convey the animals' warm friendship and the humor resulting from the misunderstanding. This ideal family read-aloud will awaken the holiday spirit in all. Ages 3-6. Sept.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The expressions on Mr. Moose's face and those of his friends make this book a standout. When combined with the charming and funny story of Mrs. Moose wanting to have a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner, parents and teachers should be prepared to read this one aloud quite a few times. 1995 (orig.

    An excellent book for veggie kids too!

    This story is not only adorable in itself, it particularly addresses the needs of vegetarian kids and families to have holiday books they can share also. Thanksgiving is especially tough because it seems to be all about 'the turkey dinner', and most literature surrounding it is no different. While this book does promote a vegetarian-themed holiday, it does so whimsically - just plain sweet with beautiful illustrations - very fun.

    Thanksgiving fun.

    It is just a fun book to read. There are not really any learning experiences this age group would be able to comprehend.
