Description


One tiny, happy mouse's simple Thanksgiving dinner gets bigger and bigger....and bigger! Uh oh!

After a Thanksgiving dinner, Mouse peeps out of his hidey-hole and spots a small green pea. It's the perfect feast for one mouse. But maybe he could add just one red cranberry, and then one shiny black olive, and then just one scoop of mashed potatoes? But how will Mouse ever get everything back home without spilling?

Now a board book, perfect for small hands and big stomachs, Mouse's Thanksgiving is a terrific read aloud where just one more thing might topple the whole adventure. Illustrator Jeffrey Ebbeler lovingly details the cozy mouse, mouth-watering food, and even a sneaky cat in the background.

Perfect for fall story times and for Thanksgiving celebrations, where everyone gathers together to laugh and be grateful for one another's company.

About the Author


Judy Cox is a former elementary school teacher and the author of picture books such as Haunted House, Haunted Mouse and chapter books including Ukulele Hayley, a Bank Street College Best Book, and The Secret Chicken Society, which was nominated for four state awards and named a Best of the Best title by the Chicago Public Library. She lives in Oregon.

Jeffrey Ebbeler has worked as an art director, book designer, and illustrator. He has illustrated lots of terrific books. In a starred review, Kirkus Reviews praised his "feisty full-page illustrations of the world from Mouse's perspective" for Cinco de Mouse-O, another book featuring the furry adventurer from Mouse's Thanksgiving. He lives with his family in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he also plays trumpet and drums in local bands.

Praise For…


"Ebbeler's full-bleed, double-page spreads make the most of the humor made available by situation and scale—spot the bespectacled mouse dwarfed by his pile as he marches past Pilgrim salt-and-pepper shakers just his size. Greed goeth before a fall, however, in a slapstick climax children will relish."—Kirkus Reviews
 
"Cox's prose is descriptive and lively . . . The colorful, animated, mixed-media illustrations show the world from a rodent's perspective, with familiar foods and household items shown in towering proportions. Particularly dramatic is a vertical spread that depicts small Mouse beneath his tall, turkey-topped food pile as Cat's face looms at the table edge. This entertaining story may be a good starting point for discussions about appreciation and excess."—Booklist

Fuddles's experience with dogs is something I can understand since I have a lot of dog friends visit me at the store. Except I don't have to deal with any puddles they make. A story that reminds you friends can be found in interesting places. - Pippi, bookstore cat
