Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—The remains of a Thanksgiving dinner are irresistible to a little mouse, who creeps out of his hole to help himself to one small pea. But soon, greed gets the better of him and before he knows it, he has taken one of every leftover tidbit, including the gravy boat and platter of turkey. Before he makes it safely back home, however, the cat spies him and pounces, knocking everything on the floor. The mouse escapes just in time, while the cat gets the blame, and to his delight he finds one "teensy-tiny, round and toothsome, green and luscious pea" for which he exclaims: "Give thanks! One is a feast for me!" Whimsical, large-scale illustrations drawn in acrylics, pastels, and colored pencils are a perfect complement to the story. Plenty of action and humor as well as a thoroughly satisfying ending make this a wonderful holiday read-aloud.—Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY

From Booklist

After a human family finishes their Thanksgiving dinner, Mouse is overjoyed to discover the leftovers, starting with a “teensy-tiny” pea: “One will be a feast for me.” Mouse gathers more scavenged treats, from cranberries to a whole pie slice, until he builds a huge stack. When Cat, who is also hungry, startles Mouse, the precariously piled food goes flying, and Mouse scurries back to safety, without his festive treats. Happily, though, the original pea is still reachable, and with renewed appreciation, Mouse enjoys a modest holiday meal. Cox’s prose is descriptive and lively, though very young children may need help with some vocabulary (“toothsome”) and phrases: “Mouse’s eyes were bigger than his stomach.” 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. Preschool-Grade 2. --Shelle Rosenfeld

This story is a lovely celebration of Thanksgiving leftovers. The landscape of the table will be familiar to anyone who has ever attended a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. The story is cute and repetition makes it a fun read for the reader and the listener.

As much as I enjoy the story it is the pictures that make this a must have. Illustrator Jeffrey Ebbeler has created an adorable little hero in Mouse. My three year old daughter pores over the pictures pointing out all the little details. Ebbeler also plays with perspective as he has in his past work including Our Walk in the Woods. In one great illustration you see a magnified Mouse through a water glass left on the table.

This would make a great addition to your library.

I ordered this book based on the reviews. The pictures are very cute, and my two boys (ages 3 and 6) giggle about the silly things the mouse does to carry the food back to his hole. I think the book is a great length too-not too long or too short. The only sad part is that it is not really about being thankful (not like I had hoped), so if that is what you are looking for, this might not be the one for you, but still a wonderful book that my boys enjoy.

We enjoy this book all year, but especially around Thanksgiving! I love the illustrations and the descriptive text. I've used the story to illustrate to my children about being greedy and taking more than you need. We often talk about what would have happened if he had just walked away with one "teensy-tiny, round and toothsome, green and luscious pea"!
