Product description


Preparing the table for Thanksgiving dinner, Mrs. Moose confesses to Mr. Moose that everything would be quite perfect if only they had a turkey for dinner. . . . With a plot twist that only young children will find surprising, Mrs. Moose offers the turkey a chair and treats him as an honored guest. Booklist, ALA

Together Bunting's good-natured tale and de Groat's autumn-hued richly detailed watercolors convey the animals' warm friendship and humor. . . . This ideal family read-aloud will awaken the holiday spirit in all. Publishers Weekly

Humorous double-page spreads in cheerful watercolors show the plump, personable animals in an ice-crusted autumn woodland and a snug country cottage that suits the Mooses and the Goats, who are garbed like Eastern European peasants. School Library Journal

2.0 out of 5 stars Force a Turkey to Thanksgiving
Reviewed in the United States on 17 November 2020
Who doesn't love a good book to help excite and teach kids about the holiday spirit? From the description it sounded like a cute story with beautiful illustrations. Unfortunately, my daughter was more fixated on the illustration of the Moose's boot on top of the turkeys head than the story. Then by the show of force, the forest animals make the Turkey go to the Moose's house for thanksgiving. Meanwhile throughout the whole story, the animal friends keep talking about how fat the turkey is. Yes, humans love fat turkeys because it provides a delicious meal, but kids don't understand that.
