One is a Feast for Mouse: A Thanksgiving Tale
One is a Feast for Mouse: A Thanksgiving Tale by Judy Cox and illustrated by Jeffrey Ebbeler, is a new addition to our Thanksgiving reading line up this year. It's a cute concept for a Thanksgiving book that's a little different from your usual giving thanks, turkeys, pilgrims and such. You meet mouse, who like many of us during Thanksgiving, finds that his eyes are bigger than his stomach. He's so busy grabbing as many of the leftovers that he can he forgets to watch out for the family cat. Mouse escapes safely back to his hidey hole but alas his stash of leftovers do not, will he have his Thanksgiving feast this year or not? The illustrations are cute too, you are met with the familiar after Thanksgiving scenes like leftovers on the table, snoozing in front of the football game and mouse is expressively drawn with so much personality!
