"I wish we had a real turkey," Mrs. Moose tells her husband. "Everyone always has a turkey on Thanksgiving." So Mr. Moose sets out to find her one.

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
