Mr. and Mrs. Moose invite all their animal friends for Thanksgiving dinner and the only one missing is Turkey. When they set out to find him, Turkey is quaking with fear because he doesn't realize that his hosts want him at their table, not on it.

From School Library Journal Mrs. Moose's suggestion to Mr. Moose that they have a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner ends in a surprising twist, in a humorous and cheerful tale captured in warm watercolors full of the hues of autumn. Reprint. AB. SLJ. PW.
