Editorial Reviews

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 "
